“From today in the morning all I have been doing is searching for him, I started at the DCI headquarters, I was directed to go to the airport he was not there, I went to Muthaiga, Gigiri, Kilimani, Kileleshwa, Embakasi police stations, went back to the airport and again to the DCI. A lot of running around trying to find him.”Fridah Muthoni.
She finally received intel about his locking up at Mwea Police Station.
“Finally I was given information that he is in Wanguru police station in Mwea. He is definitely here because there is a lady who took me aside because I went to the gate and said that all I want is to give my husband food and some medicine because he wasn’t feeling well on Monday when he left for the trip.
They refused me entry, in fact, they literally carried me out of there but there was a heavy police presence and it made me ascertain that indeed my husband is in Wanguru police station.”Fridah Muthoni.
Then followed an appeal for immediate release through ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
“My plea to Azimio leaders, Raila Odinga, (do) what you can do to please assist my husband to be free… to the government….you are the ones holding him illegally. All I want is to give my husband food and to check on him…to see that he is safe.”Fridah Muthoni.
The renowned member of parliament has since been released.
