Patrick Makau, a Mavoko member of parliament, was detained on July 13 in connection with his suspected participation in the demonstrations on Wednesday.

The politician was taken from his residence in Karen and taken to the DCI headquarters on Kiambu Road, according to an informant with knowledge of the detention.

In relation to the widespread demonstrations in Mlolongo that resulted in the damage of three entrances and roadblocks on the Nairobi Motorway, a member of parliament has been detained.

A few hours after Interior CS Kithure Kindiki issued a harsh warning, promising to hold accountable those leaders who were responsible for the demonstrations, the second-term Wiper Party MP was arrested.

Makau is the first political figure to be detained in the wake of the recent wave of demonstrations that have raised concerns about the faltering economy of the nation. He was brought up from his residence at 4:00 a.m.

The source added that the lawmaker was then freed and given instructions to show up at the DCI headquarters on Friday, July 14.

Several political figures said that the coalition led by Azimio should be held accountable for the upheaval presently roiling the nation.

Trade CS Moses Kuria spoke on the situation and charged MP Makau with organising the large-scale demonstrations in Mlolongo in response to the government's choice to remove illegal squatters from East Africa's Portland land in the Athi River.
