Police presence led to CS Kamau mother's death

05 June 2015, 12:48 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Suspended Transport and Infrastructure Cabinet Secretary, Micheal Kamau’s mother died of shock caused by police presence at their home early this week, Kieni MP Kanini Kega has claimed.

Kega claimed that a contingent of more than 15 police officers and anti-corruption detectives camped at Kamau’s home and that of his mother seeking to arrest him.

“The day court ruled that Kamau must appear in court, tens of armed police officers went to his home and that of his mother Maria Wanjiku. She immediately fell ill and later passed away,” said Kega.

Kega stated that the suspended CS, though under trial, should be given time to mourn his mother’s death.

“If it was not for the arrest, our mother would not have fallen ill,” he asserted.

“He is bereaved and court should at least give him two weeks to mourn the loss of his mother. He is just a suspect and is innocent until proven guilty,” said Kega.

The MP made the remarks after he visited the deceased’s home at Mwichuiri village, Kieni East sub-county.

Kamau’s mother is set to be laid to rest on Wednesday next week.

A section of central Kenya MPs have been quoted stating that Kamau is a victim of power plays in the region, accusing certain political interests for plotting his removal from office to create room for retired Chief of the Kenya Defence forces, General Julius Karangi.
