Kenyan opposition figure ‘to face incitement charges’

The Kenyan opposition figure who was arrested last night is expected to be charged with “incitement”, one of his lawyers has said.

Police arrested David Ndii last night at his hotel in the coastal city of Kwale, as we reported earlier.

His lawyer Otiende Amollo said that police moved him to the capital Nairobi overnight in what his lawyers say was meant to “intimidate him”.

He told reporters that they will be applying for bail for Mr Ndii.

Meanwhile, opposition leader Raila Odinga has condemned the arrest saying that it was an “attempt to intimidate the opposition”.

He said that the government was planning to “arrest” other leaders, but added that they will not be intimidated.
