Kilifi south ODM candidate  Nicholas Mrima Wanyepe spends his night in police cells in Kilifi Police station following orders to arrest him from "above". Wanyepe was arrested following allegations that he knew where Raila Odinga will be swearing-in tomorrow.



The Police claim that he had clue and evidence to show that Raila Odinga swearing-in ceremony will be conducted tomorrow. "We heard that you know where the swearing ceremony for Raila Odinga is already set." one Police officer said.


Nicholas Mrima Wanyepe, who contested the party’s primaries early this year but was defeated by current Kilifi South MP Ken Chonga was arrested on Saturday in Mtwapa and transferred to Kilifi Police Station.



Police said he was arrested for possessing material that may incite the public against the Government. But local activists said Wanyepe was detained for handing out NASA’s branded National Resistance Movement NRM T-shirts.


"I had no intention or any information about where Raila Odinga will be swearing in. I even do not anything regarding the ceremony. Nairobi ODM leaders will be in a good position to explain that. " Said Wanyepe.



Kilifi County Commander Ben Kogo said Wanyepe would be arraigned in court today. “I am out of Kilifi but that is what I was briefed. He is in custody and we shall take him to court on Monday,” said Kogo.
