Worrying details emerge on the Nairobi ‘makanga’ who is badly feared by Police

Police officers are afraid to arrest him

Daily Nation reported its sources indicating that Felix Mwingirwa was under protection from senior police officers who rely on him to collect bribes from drivers and bar owners.

Police officers at the Central Police Station referred to him as untouchable, adding that the tout has never been arrested despite numerous complaints against him.

Mwingirwa’s case gained national prominence after a social media user published a photo of one of the tout’s victims who was assaulted and left for dead at the Meru-Nairobi stage at Tea Room.

Two witnesses who attempted to rescue the assaulted passenger were subsequently arrested by junior officers at Central Police Station.

Mwingirwa remained free until the National Police Service intervened to order his arrest.

He was charged, but denied the charges and was released on a Sh50,000 cash bail.

A photo seen by Pulselive.co.ke showed Mwingirw posing in front of a government vehicle at State House Nairobi.
