It has been said that the DG was arrested as he and MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto waited to welcome him (Ruto) to former minister Simoen Nyachae’s burial.

It is alleged that he (Maangi) and some Ruto men had mobilized youths to heckle other leaders present at the funeral that is underway.

On Sunday, a former ODM branch executive and now an ally of the DP, Samuel Omwando was arrested from his house in Nyanchwa.

Maangi condemned the arrest of Mr Omwando.
