Police deny pursuing NASA leaders who have sought bail

The National Police Service says it is not in pursuit of Mombasa governor Hassan Joho, Businessman Jimmy Wanjigi, NASA strategist David Ndii and nine others who have sought anticipatory bail.

The Police service has therefore advised them not to bother turning up at the directorate of criminal investigations (DCI) offices, saying they are not persons of interest to the Police as of now.

Police said via their twitter account Tuesday that the 12 NASA leaders are not being sought in connection with committing any crimes.

This was after the High court barred the DPP and the police from arresting and prosecuting the 12 Nasa leaders who actively participated in the ‘swearing-in’ of Raila Odinga.

The politicians filed an urgent application at the Milimani law courts saying they feared arrest and being held just like lawyer Miguna Miguna.

They are James Orengo, George Aladwa, Simba Arati, George Khaniri, Jimmy Wanjingi, Norman Magaya, and Gladys Wanga, David Ndii, Babu Owino, Oduor Ong’wen, Cleophas Malala, and Hassan Joho.

Judge Luka Kimaru released each of them on 100,000 shillings anticipatory bail.
