Opposition leaders were on the morning of Monday, November 4, barred from getting into the DCI headquarters where David Ndii is being detained following his arrest in Kwale on Sunday.
Among the politicians camping outside the Directorate of Criminal Investigation offices is Siaya Senator James Orengo, former Nairobi senatorial aspirant Edwin Sifuna and National Super Alliance CEO Norman Magaya among others.
It however remains unclear why Ndii was arrested but authorities say he will be interrogated for incitement in the wake of Nasa’s push for the creation of the People’s Assembly.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga had declared he will be sworn-in as President and Kalonzo Musyoka as his deputy through the People’s Assembly, on Jamhuri Day (December 12).
The Nasa strategist was apprehended by detectives at Leopard Beach Resort in Kwale county yesterday at 4:30pm before being moved to the capital at night.
The Standard reports that he will record statements with officers from the Serious Crimes Unit over allegations of incitement.
Reports indicate that Ndii had been meeting several groups of people to discuss secession at the luxurious hotel Diani.
Ndii is leading a group of seven experts who have been tasked by Nasa to push for the People’s Assembly which is behind the swearing in of Mr Odinga and fresh elections.
