Exclusive: MP Jaguar, Nairobi MCA behind attack on CBD public toilets
Police have finally unmasked the politicians behind the attack on Nairobi City County toilets on Thursday night in the Central Business District.
Starehe MP Charles Kanyi, aka Jaguar and Nairobi Central Ward MCA, Daniel Ngengi Muturi, have been named as the leaders behind the shameful incident where over 100 hired goons invaded and attempted to forcefully take over the management of public toilets within CBD.
After the Thursday night incident police and City Hall Askaris arrested 14 of the hired goons who are being held at the Central Police station and are set to appear in Court on Tuesday.
According to detectives at Central Police station, the goons have named Jaguar and the Nairobi Central Ward MCA as their financiers.
“The two politicians want to take over the public toilets and ensure they get the revenue collected from the public toilets,” said a police officer at the Central Police Station.
Jaguar has been fighting City Hall since last year after he moved to court to challenge the ban of boda boda operators in Nairobi’s CBD, but he terribly lost the case.
Justice Roselyn Aburili dismissed the case and also hit out at Jaguar, accusing him of using the boda boda issue to gain political mileage.
“You must not pawn the riders for political gain. You should not create any legitimate expectations in the minds of the riders that they will not enforce after the election,” she said.
Justice Aburilu also told Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko to enforce the law decisively if he intends to eradicate the rot in the city and restore it’s former glory.
