Maina Njenga to appear in court over alleged possession of dangerous weapons
Former Mungiki leader Maina Njega is set to appear before the Magistrate at Makadara Law Courts on Monday, over alleged possession of weapons.
Njenga is presently awaiting arraignment in the court cells within the court precincts.
Njenga and his co-accused Peter Njoroge Kamunya and Felix Ratu Lakishe have been charged with possession of offensive weapons including 14 machetes,24 Maasai swords, 46 rungus, and three jembe sticks.
These items were allegedly discovered in their home in Kiserian area, Kajiado County on July 20.
Njenga was arrested at his father’s home in Matasia, Kajiado County, on Wednesday night.
Justice Diana Mochache ordered the police to produce and free Maina Njenga Kamunya and not to arrest him unless he failed to show up in court as directed.
This is after his son, Maina Stephen Njenga, filed a Habeas Corpus application demanding the production of his father on Saturday, July 22.
Maina Njenga’s arrest has held a lot of controversies since he disappeared after his arrest, with his advocate Lawyer Ndegwa Njiru condemning his continuous detention.
“Good morning Kenya, the days of detention without trial are here with us… My client Maina Njenga is still missing. He was abducted by police whose Subarus had a South Sudan registration number. He was never booked in any police station,” the lawyer wrote on Twitter.
