A heated debate erupted in the Senate on Wednesday afternoon after reports emerged that Meru Senator Mithika Linturi had been arrested ahead of a Special Sitting where senators were protesting against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill.
Reports of the alleged arrest were brought to the House by Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, who said he had received a call from Linturi informing him that he had been arrested by the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
“Mr. Mr Speaker I want to bring you something that will need your guidance. I received a call from one of my colleagues; Senator Mithika Linturi… This afternoon on his way to Parliament he was stopped by gentlemen who claimed to be DCI police. They asked him to get out of his car and he is currently in a car heading to DDCI…, ”said Cheruiyot.
"I would like to know if you know why Senator Linturi was arrested and if you do not know, how do we continue to know that we are about to enter a period when our colleagues should have been taken one by one."
