Sleuths trailed renowned economist David Ndii from Nairobi to the Coast ending in a dramatic arrest on Sunday night on suspicion he was planning meetings with the outlawed Mombasa Republican Council of the ‘Pwani si Kenya’ mantra.
Zipo.co.ke has learnt that Ndii had been under 24-hour surveillance for some time and the State believed the Nasa policy chief was in contact with various people, including MRC members.
“We have been monitoring his movements and meetings. We had information he may have been planning meetings in Mombasa with MRC members or associates,” the Star quoted an unnamed senior police officer.
Ndii’s wife denied the reports and said they were in Diani on holiday and to attend a wedding.
“We came to give our daughter a holiday after the wedding. My husband did not have any other engagements or meetings,” Mwende Gatabaki said in a presser after her husband Ndii was arrested.
Police arrested the Nasa policy adviser for incitement after a social media post he authored went viral on social media.
“They justify the murder of our Luo brothers and sisters. To justify police brutality and extrajudicial killings.
The freedom of a peaceful assembly is now illegal and deleted from the Constitution.
“You play with the People’s votes, lives, rights and Democracy. This is sheer evil. Babies and pregnant mothers are shot dead while demonstrating.
“We shall not watch and see our democracy buried down deep down the soil. Think. Breathe. Pause. Plenty of alarming news will be flying in the next 10 days. Do not succumb to fear or intimidation.
“Stay sober and vigil. When the time comes. Come out and play your part. Assembly up and swear the People’s President.” Ndii wrote.
