Wife reveals Muthama’s soft underbelly at police station
Machakos Senator Johnston Muthama’s wife broke down as she watched her husband being ushered into the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) offices for grilling over alleged hate-speech.
Jemima Muthama, clad in a black dress and a white blazer, accompanied her husband to the criminal investigations headquarters on Kiambu Road Tuesday morning and was overcome by emotions after watching her husband being ‘man-handled’ by flying squad officers.
The officers had gone to their home in Runda to pick the Senator, after Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet issued orders that they should appear for grilling at the DCI headquarters.
When finally the vehicles carrying Mr Muthama and the officers from the squad arrived at the DCI’s gate, Mrs Muthama and his body guards were asked to disembark from the vehicles as only the Senator would be allowed into the offices to record statements.
Mrs Muthama could not hold back her tears and she kept wiping her face as her husband’s bodyguard and other politicians pleaded with the police to allow a few members of the family to accompany the senator.
