Kisumu based opposition activist Makamu wa Kisumu has been allegedly arrested barely an hour after Statehouse official Dennis Itumbi called for his prosecution. Makamu is alleged to have been arrested in Kisumu and is reported to be held in Kisumu Central Police station.
Itumbi who is President Uhuru’s man on Facebook and other social media called for the arrest and prosecution of Makamu following his widely circulated video in which he condemns Jubilee regime for teargassing of CORD leader Raila Odinga on Monday during the Occupy IEBC protests.
ODM lead blogger Lee Makwiny has condemned the arrest of Makamu and termed it a mistake that will not serve Jubilee’s interests, waring it may backfire to a point of propelling Makamu into mainstream politics where Uhuru will not be able to cage him.
Raila Odinga was detained for 9 years. The arrest of Makamu Wa Kisumu will simply initiate him into politics.
What he said is true. ICC is nothing. Hague is nothing. Iebc must go home. If they don’t, Kenya will go to the dogs. And as my friend Eliud Owalo always say, anybody planning to steal the elections must also start preparing how to handle the aftermath since it will be real aftermath.
Another ODM online warrior wondered where Itumbi gets powers to summon Police to order them who to arrest;>>
Denis Itumbi says Makamu should be Arrested, True to his words #Makamu gets arrested.
His Mistake is Criticizing Jubilee for using excessive force while denying CORD their right to #OccupyIEBC. #FreeMakamu
We have reached a point where Junior people like Itumbi can order Police to arrest those who oppose how they do things.
#IEBC must be disbanded.
