      Dear friends of Bunge la Mwananchi,

       

      Two members of Bunge la Mwananchi, Wangui Mbatia and Kennedy Ochieng, have been arrested at 11.00 am this morning at Jeevanjee Gardens.

       

      They were distributing T-Shirts with the message “No taxes for MPs, no taxes for us”. This was an initiative by grassroot Kenyans demanding that MPs should not exempt themselves from the taxpaying responsibility.

       

      The two are being held at the Central Police Station, Nairobi. They have been charged with engaging in illegal procession. They have already been fingerprinted and are scheduled to appear in court this afternoon at about 2.00 pm. The most likely court to which they will be taken is the High Court, Court No. 1.

       

      This is an appeal to you to stand in solidarity with us as we all resist the culture of impunity amongst Kenyan politicians.

       

      Regards,

      George Nyongesa
