Mombasa police have arrested Mombasa Airport Ward Representative Mr. Ibrahim Omondi.
According to his wife Josephine Ibrahim, about 15 police officers raided his Changamwe home at 5am, on Friday 20th October 2017.
Coast police boss Larry Kieng confirmed the MCA is in their custody saying, “we are investigating him concerning a very serious offence on national security”.
On Thursday, several Mombasa MCAs warned
the electoral commission IEBC against conducting an election in the county on October 26.
The ward representatives who are of NASA declared there will be no election in the County.
Mrs Ibrahim said the MCA’s arrest could be linked to a statement he made during the event.
A video went viral on social media showing Mr Ibrahim Omondi dismissing President Uhuru Kenyatta as a caretaker and not the president.
“Uhuru Kenyatta should be very careful. He is not even the President of Kenya, he is a
caretaker president and he is supposed to respect the constitution just like any other citizen of this country,” the MCA allegedly said in the video.
