A section of leaders in Nakuru County has condemned the arrest of Mr Aden Abdulahi – a former Personal assistant to suspended Nakuru County Cec for Sports Youth and Gender Halima Gababa.
Mr.Abdulahi was arrested on Wednesday just two days after he had indicated that his life was in danger.
He is said to have received threats from certain quotas following his indifference with the suspended CeC Gababa.
Addressing media outside Nakuru Central Police station where Mr.Abdulahi is being held, Nakuru leaders led by Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama condemned the action to arrest and intimidate the former Gababa’s PA.
Arama blamed the police for intimidating Mr.Abdulahi who had only reported the threats he had received from certain quotas.
“It is a right if someone has been threatened to report to police but they should not be intimidated. We are also asking the police not to allow to be used by some individuals” said Arama.
Arama who was accompanied by Jubilee Party Nakuru Branch secretary general Peter Cheruiyot , Nakuru Small Traders Association chairman Simon Ole Nasieku, Nakuru youth leader Daniel Kimani among others called on county leaders to respect the electorates.
He condemned the manner in which the suspended Cec reacted while at the Nakuru Central police station.
“I am a member of parliament and I deserve the respect and everyone must be respected.
Gababa was given a chance to serve the people of Nakuru and she should respect leaders and electorates” said Arama.
Similar sentiments echoed by Simon Ole Nasieku and Mr.Daniel Kimani.
Nasieku is now calling on Governor Lee Kinyanjui to ensure the rogue county staffs who have no respect for the electorates and other leaders are ousted from office.
“We are very saddened by actions of Gababa who has shown no respect even for MP Arama and we are calling on Governor Kinyanjui to act and avert one person destroying the whole county,” said Nasieku.
