Former Mungiki Leader Maina Njenga is set to face several criminal charges among them being a member of an organised criminal group.

According to documents seen by Citizen Digital, Njenga who was Thursday grilled by DCI detectives in Nairobi is accused of addressing a meeting at Wanyororo area in Nakuru County on May 11, 2023 to “encourage support” for the outlawed criminal group, Mungiki.

Njenga is further facing charges of engaging in criminal activities. He is accused of inviting individuals to the said meeting at Wanyororo area where he is alleged to have provided instructions connected with Mungiki.

He is also accused of being in possession of government stores where he is alleged to have been found in possession of “a military back pack strap, property of the National Police Service that is suspected to have been stolen or unlawfully obtained.”

The former Senatorial candidate had been summoned to appear at the DCI headquarters in Nairobi for questioning after recording a statement at DCI Nakuru.

After remaining in the hands of DCI sleuths for the better part of Thursday, Njenga was released on free bond pending his arraignment on Monday.

He is set to be charged alongside 11 of his followers with whom they face 12 counts of engaging in criminal activities and unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of bhang and possession of records likely to be useful to a person preparing a serious crime.

Earlier on Thursday, Police were forced to lob teargas canisters at hundreds of people who had shown up at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters in Nairobi in support of former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga.
