In his post on Facebook on 15th July 2021, the self-proclaimed Hustler Nation spokesperson, Dennis Ole Itumbi, accuses Kiambu Police Station of detaining three young people on allegations of voting issues.
According to Itumbi, the lawyers of the trio - Sabina Dandu, Danson Baraza and Hannah Wanjiru, have been informed by the station that they will be held in custody until Monday next week.
Itumbi says the three were arrested yesterday at around 10 AM.
On the post, Itumbi accuses the station of trying to violate the rights of the detained individuals by holding them in custody for a period of more than 24 hours without a trial.
He asked the station not to have their own set of rules but to obey the constitution.
Itumbi says if the three would not have been released or taken to court by 11 AM today, the Hustler Nation would intervene. He also accuses police of trying to intimidate the three based on the fact that they have no godfathers.
Further, Itumbi threatens to take legal actions against the head of the station and the officers responsible for the arrest of the three if they are held in custody for more than 24 hours. The legal actions he claims would include the sufferings of the victims being personally surcharged from the salaries of the head of the station and the officers responsible for the arrest of the trio.
The self-proclaimed Hustler Nation spokesperson further accuses chiefs in the ongoing Kiamba by-election of bribing voters to cast their votes in favor of Jubilee Party candidate. He has asked Police and IEBC to stop them lest the "hustlers" do so.
Is UDA sensing defeat or the state is selling fear and intimidation to its supporters? What are your thoughts?
