Controversial human rights activist Boniface Mwangi arrested – Nairobi News

Human rights activist Boniface Mwangi has been arrested in Nairobi and taken to the Central Police Station.

This is according to a message Mwangi posted on his Facebook page on Monday afternoon.

“I have been arrested by Directorate of Criminal Investigations – DCI from my house. We are headed to Central Police Station. I haven’t been told the reason for my arrest,” read his post.

A police officer privy to the arrest told Nairobi News that Mr Mwangi had been arrested for being “careless.”

“He has been arrested for being careless, we shall reveal more later,” said the officer.

The last time Mr Mwangi was at Central Police Station was on April 30, when he led a group of activists in demanding for the release of fellow activist, Beatrice Waithera Maina, who had been arrested for leading a demonstration in the city center.
