Maina Njenga's Workers Allege Number of Police Who Raided His Houses on Friday Morning

Police bosses have denied sending officers to raid homes of former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga.

This is even as his workers confirm that there were raids at his homes in Nairobi, Nakuru and Nyandarua, which began at dawn on Friday.

His workers at the Nyandarua home claim that the officers, who were over 20 in number, were there by the time they were walking up on Friday and demanded to search the house.

One of them has told The Standard that they communicated the same to their boss, who was not around, and who told them to allow the officers in.

"They told us that they had orders to search for documents in the house. We alerted our boss who told us that they were free to do so since there was nothing to hide," the worker has said.

Another one at the Nakuru home said that the same thing happened there, and the raids seem to have been coordinated to happen in the same manner.

"This is the same thing that happened to his other homes. We do not know the motive," he said.

Earlier, Njenga had confirmed the same, which also reportedly happened at his homes in Lavington and Karen, adding that he had gone into hiding.

He told The Star that he suspects that they have something to do with the burial of Mukami Kimathi, and are an attempt to keep him off, especially after he announced that he will be bringing Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga along.

“I was at the home of Kimathi on Thursday and told the family we will come with baba (Raila) and I think this is the reason they are doing this. It is a funeral and let it be,” he said.

But Laikipia County police commander John Nyoike has told The Standard  that he was unaware of the raid, the same being the case with Rift Valley Regional police boss Tom Odero.
