Kenyans on twitter are calling for the release of Njeri wa Muthoni who was arrested for recording a video of police harassing a female passenger along Thika Road.
In a video that has since gone viral traffic police officers on Thika Highway are seen assaulting a passenger who was onboard the front seat of a matatu.
The officers allegedly wanted to occupy the front seat where the lady was seated but the said lady refused to alight.
Trouble began when the officers spotted Njeri recording the video of the ongoing back and forth between the officers and the unidentified lady.
The officers then threatened to arrest Njeri who went on and dared them to do so.
According to word on social media, Njeri was arrested and detained at Kasarani police station.
It’s not yet clear on which charges Njeri was arrested by the officers.
