Bishop Wanjiru to appear in court after night in police cell

Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant, Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, is expected to be arraigned in court on Thursday morning after spending the night in a police cell.

Bishop Wanjiru spent the night at the Pangani Police Station after she was arrested for allegedly causing violence at City Park polling station during the Jubilee Party primaries on Wednesday.

The former Starehe MP has also been accused of storming the centre together with her supporters and destroying ballot papers which had already been cast during the nomination that was marred by claims of favouritism between the city’s governorship top contestants Mike Sonko and former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth.

Nairobi Police boss Japheth Koome confirmed her arrest and said the former legislator will be charged in court with incitement to violence charges.

Police report shows that she was arrested and booked at the police station after the evening incident.
