Police had raided Mraja’s home at 4am Monday morning but failed to find him and took the wife with them for questioning.

Four other people have been arrested since Sunday evening, some of them with write ups advocating for secession.
‘Pwani si Kenya’ – (Coast is not part of Kenya) is one of the hate speeches that led to the MRC spokesman being sought by police.
Internal security PS Mutea Iringo says the government has launched a crackdown on MRC leadership and financiers over the gang’s criminal activities.
