Former Mungiki leader, Maina Njenga, has expressed his readiness to meet Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, urging for the release of over 200 youths detained in Nyeri town after his planned thanksgiving meeting was disrupted.

Speaking to the media at his residence in Rongai, Kajiado county, Njenga clarified that he harbored no differences with Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua. The intended gathering, scheduled for Kabiru-Ini grounds in Nyeri on December 31, was thwarted by a significant deployment of security forces.

Njenga explained that the meeting had been silently called off, and the detained youths had merely come to observe the events in town. On Sunday, police sealed off routes to Kibiru-ini ground, inspecting vehicles through roadblocks.

Over 200 individuals suspected of heading to the venue were arrested, and their vehicles were towed to Nyeri Central Police Station. They are expected to appear in court on Tuesday.

Njenga emphasized that, similar to political leaders from other regions who convene to discuss various matters, he saw no issue with meeting the Deputy President to address concerns related to the Mt Kenya region. He revealed that elders from the Mt Kenya region had persuaded him on Sunday to call off the meeting, emphasizing the need for the involvement of all stakeholders.
