Members of the public have raised pertinent questions on the orders issued by the Inspector-general of police Hillary Mutyambai over the weekend directing arrest of two vocal Murang'a County politicians.
The National Police Service in a statement across its social media pages on Sunday indicated that Mutyambai had instructed that the two members of parliament who host the Deputy President William Ruto are put behind bars.
"The Inspector-General has directed that members of parliament Hon. Ndindi Nyoro and Hon. Alice Wahome to be tracked and arrested immediately for mobilizing goons who caused mayhem at Kenol this morning.
"Equally, the motor vehicles which were hired to ferry goons be tracked and detained to assist in the investigation," the police statement read.
Kenyans on social media raised concern over the move by the police boss wondering why only the leaders hosting the fundraiser at the AIPCA Kenol church were facing the probe.
"So now Ndindi Nyoro and Alice Wahome disrupted their own meeting!" wondered a social media user. At least 40 members of parliament accompanied the deputy president to the event.
Area leaders lead by Kandara MP Alice Wahome accused Murang'a Women Rep Sabina Chege of ferrying youth under instructions to cause mayhem and disrupt the event.
AIPCA Bishop Stephen Ng'ang'a said police had hurled three teargas canisters into the church. The church leadership claimed that the area OCPD had announced that the service had been cancelled.
Police said two people were killed in the confrontation with the area MP Alice Wahome saying they were able to proceed with the event as planned out of the resilience by their youth and businesswomen at Kenol.
"We want to thank our youth. We are here because of their efforts. Businesspeople had been ferried from Nairobi to come and disrupt this event. We could not allow it," stated Wahome.
Hon Nyoro, on the other hand, accused Interior CS Fred Matiang'i and his PS Karanja Kibicho of working with the area woman MP Sabina Chege to hire goons that caused the confrontation.
David Mwaura, just us several other Kenyans on Twitter, found the IG's directive as misguided.
"I think on this one you must be out of your mind go the real culprits stop side shows how can they cause mayhem yet they invited the DP," he wrote.
