Kuria who addressed journalists said that police had chased them away and teargassed when they went to visit on Tuesday after Jaguar's arrest.

Jaguar was arrested at Parliament buildings on Wednesday and taken to the Nairobi area police station over allegations of making 'xenophobic' remarks.

The MPs who were accompanied by Jaguar's supporters told journalists they were denied access to the Starehe MP.

"We came here as colleagues of Jaguar but police chased us away and fired teargassed us," Moses Kuria said.

"What Jaguar is saying is what Matiang'i was saying about people coming from China and taking over locals job," he added.

MPs warn government

Kuria said it was unacceptable for Chinese nationals whose country has big manufacturing companies to take up jobs which Kenyans could perform.

"I want to tell the government today we have been teargassed but the smell of revolution in this country is stronger than the smell of the teargas here today," the Gatundu legislator said.

Langata MP Nixon Korir who also spoke to the press said that there were orders from above to the police to deny them access to Jaguar.

"We wonder what they want to do to him (Jaguar)... Matiang'i said foreigners without papers and doing business that Kenyans can do should be deported," Korir said.

"Foreigners can not come here and become hawkers. What is Kenya doing to protect the citizens," he added.
