Starehe Member of Parliament Charles Njagua alias Jaguar has been arrested on Wednesday over his remarks on foreign traders.
The Starehe MP was arrested outside parliament building at noon by plain clothe police officers.
Hon. Jaguar who visited traders along Kirinyaga road said enough is enough to foreign traders who run business in the capital Nairobi.
He further said that both Tanzanians and Ugandans have taken over business and he is giving them a 24-hour ultimatum to be deported or else he will remove them and have them beaten up.
Aware of the damage he has done, the Starehe MP took to twitter to calm the now diplomatic row between Kenya and Tanzania.
In his tweet he said “My sentiments echoed yesterday with a directive to C.S Matiang’i was meant for the Chinese who have invaded our markets making businesses almost unbearable bearing for our citizens. I am not against any regional unions that are meant to promote both local and regional trade.”
