"You can't make this stuff up!"

Kenyans notice that car used during Starehe MP Charles Njagua arrest had South Sudan number plate

Kenyans have noticed that the car used by DCI detectives during Starehe MP Charles Njagua's arrest strangely had a South Sudan number plate.

The awkward situation was not lost on Kenyans as they were quick to point out the puzzling occurrence.

One Ahmed Mohamed noted: "Jaguar is arrested over his xenophobic remarks on foreigners doing business in Kenya in a foreign car with a South Sudan number plates. This is just classic. You can’t make this stuff up!"

It has become a common incident for Kenyan citizens to import vehicles through neighbouring nations and have them processed through the foreign nations due to cheaper rates.

Drama surrounding arrest of Starehe MP Charles Njagua

MP Njagua alias Jaguar was arrested outside Parliament on Wednesday afternoon as he was going in for the day's session and bundled into the SSD 581AQ car and driven to Nairobi Area Police Station.

Shortly after, Njagua posted online that his remarks on Tanzanian and Ugandan residents in Kenya had been taken out of context.

"My recent sentiments over the invading of our market by foreigners have been greatly misinterpreted.I mean peace for the country and businesses should go on uninterrupted and all foreigners are welcome to our country," he posted on twitter.

MP's who camped at the police station in solidarity with their colleagues were teargassed in a bid to disperse them.

The MP was arraigned in court on Thursday to answer to the charges brought against him.
