Starehe MP Jaguar arrested

Renowned singer and Starehe Member of Parliament Charles Njagua Kanyi, popularly known as Jaguar has been arrested over alleged incitement of Mwariro Market traders.

The first-time MP took to his social media pages to state that the charges against him were still unclear but they seemed to be connected to Mwariro Market. The Kipepeo singer went on to vow to continue fighting for his constituents.

He admitted that being a leader was not an easy task but he remains unshaken adding that allocations at Mwariro Market have to be fair.

“I’m currently at Nairobi Area. The charges against me are unclear though they seem connected to Mwariro Market. I will keep fighting for my constituents. Being a leader is tough but my resolve remains unshaken. Allocations at Mwariro have to be fair,” read his statement after his arrest.

It is reported that the Nairobi Police Commander Phillip Ndolo confirmed Jaguar’s arrest stating that he was accused of incitement to violence.

A few days ago after the Gikomba Market was set on fire again under unclear circumstances, Jaguar revealed that the National Youth Service recruits were in the market demolishing stalls that traders had reconstructed after the mysterious fire.

He also disclosed that GSU officers were protecting the recruits as he went on to question if the exercise was a sign that the government had been involved in the recent fire.

He claimed that the Interior Permanent Secretary Karanja Kibicho who was accompanied by Nairobi Metropolitan Service Director-General Badi had promised to compensate each trader who lost property Ksh. 10,000.

“Interior PS Karanja Kibicho accompanied by NMS Director-General Badi had promised Sh.10,000 compensation for each trader who had lost property during the inferno. He didn’t say anything about the demolition of reconstructed stalls. These actions are, therefore, suspect & insensitive,” read his post.

He went on to ask for an immediate halt of the exercise urging the NYS recruits to go home. He added that the government should protect property and not encourage its destruction.
