Bishop Wanjiru’s son caught up in voter registration controversy

The son of former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru was on Tuesday afternoon caught up in a voter registration controversy in Mathare.

According to a police report, Evans Kariuki was attacked by youths after he visited a voter registration centre in the constituency.

“The youths who were at the centre shouted at him alleging he had gone to buy national IDs at the said centre. They were dispersed by officers manning the Deputy County Commissioner’s Mathare office where they went and blocked Juja Road with stones,” the report explained.

Mr Evans Kariuki is a sibling of area MP Stephen Kariuki.

Their mother has announced her intention to vie for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat.
