In a dramatic new development the Imenti Central MP Gideon Mwiti (pictured) was arrested yesterday and locked up at Kileleshwa police station where he spent the night. This is in connection to the claim that has dominated the media over the last week or so about how he allegedly raped a woman in his office shortly after subjecting her to an HIV test.
It is expected that Mwiti will be taken to court this morning and formally charged with the rape.
It is claimed that the legislator raped a 29-year-old married woman on March 21, in his office in Westlands, Nairobi.
What this means is that prosecutors must have compelling enough evidence to take such a powerful politician to court. This could include DNA samples whose results the police seem to have been waiting for before making the decision to arrest and charge the legislator.
Police also took statements from more than 10 people in connection to this case. The latest witness to be questioned is a security officer who works at Pizza Garden, Westlands one of the places that the MP is said to have gone with the woman on the night of the incident.
Mwiti has taken a low profile in recent days and could not even be reached by the media. This is in sharp contrast to earlier days when he confidently talked to the press even as he gave conflicting accounts of what exactly happened on the fateful night of March 21st 2015.
