Nairobi Azimio MCAs have given the government 12 hours to release Korogocho MCA Absalom Odhiambo Onyango alias Matakwei Mobimba.
Led by the Nairobi County Assembly Majority Leader Peter Imwatok, the ward reps on Monday condemned the recent arrest of their colleague, noting the country is slipping back to dictatorship.
“Dictatorship is back, the Moi era is back. We want Absalom released unconditionally within 12 hours,” Imwatok said and challenged the Ruto regime to instead arrest their leader Raila Odinga, who they are following his orders.
“I want to challenge the entire government, you know who is supposed to be arrested. Kindly arrest Raila Amollo Odinga. That is the man who tells us to go right and we go,” Imwatok said.
On Monday morning, MCA Odhiambo was picked by the DCI sleuths at the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) offices where he had been summoned over alleged incitement remarks.
He was accompanied by his lawyer Apollo Mboya and Imwatok at the time of the arrest.
The arrest follows a viral video captured at the Kamukunji rally.
