Police on Tuesday morning arrested Embakasi Central MP Benjamin Gathiru after he tried to stop the demolition of houses near Nyama Villa pub.

Mr Gathiru arrived at the site where the demolition was ongoing mid-morning and confronted officers who were providing security to the operation.

The demolition kicked off on Tuesday early morning.

Locals claim they were not issued with a notice prior to the demolition.

“We were not issued with notice, we only woke up to find excavators parked outside and ready to start bringing the structures down,” said a local.

Efforts to reach Kayole Police boss Joseph Gichangi proved futile as he neither replied to messages nor calls.
