It was widely expected that NASA strategist Dr David Mwangi Ndii would be a state guest at some point for his unhindered criticism of President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Jubilee administration by extension.
His calls for secession got Jubilee diehards baying for his blood; they wanted him charged with treason and hanged to save the country from a bloodbath. Dr Ndii, however, got a section of Kenyans opposed to Uhuru Kenyatta excited by the prospects of birthing the new People’s Republic of Kenya.
Ndii was arrested in Kwale where he was to attend a wedding with his family. He was whisked to Nairobi by officers drawn from the flying squad and the special criminal prevention unit, just showing he was not an ordinary ‘criminal’.
His appointment as the People’s Assembly National Steering Committee and his ‘war’ like utterances may have precipitated his arrest. It’s through the People Assembly that Raila will be sworn in as President.
We take a look at other NASA members who face possible arrest before the 12 December swearing in ceremony of Raila Odinga.
