He was arrested again in May after he tried to stop yet another demolition of houses built on a road reserve in his Embakasi constituency.
Led by AFC Leopards Chairman Alex ole Magelo, the Maasai lobby group leading the demonstrations said it was the constitutional and natural right for every Kenyan to live where he or she deems safe. “Waititu should know this is an electioneering period and such untimely sentiments are likely to breach peaceful coexistence. Our demand as the Maa group is that President Kibaki must sack Waititu as an assistant minister, within 36 hours,” said Kenya Maa Students Association official Raphael Olemaleto.
The lobby group said that Nairobi is a cosmopolitan city that belongs to all Kenyans.
The Maa group also wants Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta to kick such people who are insensitive and harbour tribal tendencies out of his TNA party, if he wants support from the Maasai.
