Wednesday June 26, 2019 - Starehe MP, Charles Njagua Kanyi alias Jaguar, has been arrested for uttering xenophobic remarks against foreign traders working in the popular Gikomba Market.
In the undated video, the legislator points an accusing finger at the Chinese, Tanzanians and Ugandans for dominating businesses that would otherwise be done by locals.
He goes ahead to issue a 24-hour ultimatum, failure to which they will storm their shops, evict them and beat them up.
On Tuesday, the Tanzanian Government summoned Kenya’s High Commissioner to Dar es Salaam, Dan Kazungu, to explain the xenophobic remarks and the safety of Tanzanian nationals in Kenya.
Tanzania’s President, John Pombe Magufuli, is said to have phoned President Uhuru Kenyatta and warned him of consequences should he failed to order the arrest of the Starehe lawmaker.
Magufuli threatened to expel all Kenyans working in Tanzania should the Kenyan Government fail to arrest the venomous legislator.
