There was drama when Suna East MP Junet Mohamed was arrested on Tuesday morning outside Nation Centre in Nairobi, moments after leaving a live interview with NTV.
As soon as Mr Mohamed got out of the building on Kimathi Street, he was surrounded by Flying Squad police officers, who had been waiting for him since 7.30am. The officers were led by squad head Said Kiprotich.
The lawmaker had been invited to NTV for a discussion on hate speech, for which he was arrested.
Mr Mohamed did not leave Nation Centre until his lawyer, James Orengo, arrived.
Mr Mohamed and Mr Orengo were escorted to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Kiambu Road where he was expected to record a statement concerning allegations that he and other Cord leaders made statements that amounted to hate speech.
