Kenyan MP to Stay in Jail as Police Probe ‘Xenophobic Threats'


The court has issued an order to allow police to further detain Starehe MP Charles Njagua, popularly known as Jaguar. Njagua was arrested for issuing an ultimatum to Interior Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiang'i, to deport Chinese traders in city markets. He also gave the government 24-hours to evict all foreigners doing business in his constituency, threatening to "round them up, beat them and forcefully kick them out of the country".
