Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko has directed the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to release National Super Alliance chief strategist David Ndii pending conclusion of  investigations.

Further, the DPP directed that once investigations are completed, the resultant inquiry file be forwarded to his office for appropriate directions.

“DPP Keriako Tobiko has directed @DCI_Kenya that David Ndii be released on police bond. Further, DPP has directed that once investigations are completed, the resultant inquiry file be forwarded to @ODPP_KE for appropriate directions,” the DPP office tweeted.

Ndii was arrested on Sunday (December 4) in Kwale and transferred overnight to the CID headquarters in Nairobi.

The renowned economist, who is a ardent critic of the Jubilee government, was set to be charged with incitement to violence, according to his lawyers.

Ndii, who is also the National Super Alliance chief strategist, was arrested as he went for dinner together with his 11-year-old daughter, according to his wife Mwende Gatabaki.

Recounting the arrest that caught many by surprise, Mrs. Ndii said seven security officers, who were in two vehicles arrived at Leopard Beach Hotel in Kwale at around 8.30pm and parked outside.

Meanwhile, Opposition chief Raila Odinga has termed the arrest of economist David Ndii as an act of intimidation by the Jubilee administration.

“These are basically designs to try and intimidate and blackmail the people of Kenya. Mr. David Ndii has committed no crime. People of Kenya will not be intimidated into submission,” said Odinga.

Mr. Odinga told journalists on Monday that Ndii, who is the head of the National Super Alliance (NASA) People’s Assembly Steering Committee, had committed no crime and that his detention was designed to subdue “the will of the people.”
