Narok Senator, 4 MPs arrested over deadly demonstrations

28 January 2015, 19:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Narok Senator Stephen Ole Ntutu and 4 MPs have been arrested over the fracas that took place in the County Monday, causing the death of 2 people. 

Ntutu together with MPs Moitalel ole Kenda, Jonah Ng'eno, Kolei Olememei and Patrick Ntutu were detained by the CID Wednesday evening for their part in the illegal demonstrations over apparent misappropriation of funds by the Narok County Governor.

2 people were confirmed dead in the demonstrations that eventually turned violent.

The MPs and Ntutu had been asked by Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery to head to the CID and record statements over the demonstrations that had been declared illegal by his office and the police.

They did so Wednesday and recorded statements at the Muthaiga Police Station and despite openly availing themselves, were detained for further investigations.

" They have been detained after questioning for further investigations," a police officer at the station that is not authorised to speak officially confirmed to News24.

It is not yet clear whether they will be detained overnight but it is understood that they are expected in court Thursday to answer to charges of incitement and causing public disorder.

Tension has gripped Narok town after the area leaders defied the government’s ban on rallies and demonstrations and staged a demo in the town.

Senator Ntutu lead other legislators and residents from the County in storming the governor’s office over allegations of misappropriation of funds collected from the Maasai Mara Game Reserve by the county government.  

Ntutu said that the demonstrations would go on as they are not a threat to the security but they rather want to present a petition to the governor Kuntai ole Tunai.

Narok governor Kuntai ole Tunai has since dismissed the claims as baseless and political and aimed at slowing down the development that he has started in the area.

Nkaissery had banned rallies and demonstrations in the region, saying that they could result in violent confrontations and loss of lives.

There is currently a heavy presence of security personnel in and around the town.
