The fierce critic of the state’s arrest and detention at Central Police station, has been linked to his hard stance on the arrest of activist Betty Wa Shiro.

Ms Shiro was arrested in the anti-corruption protests dubbed Beyond Zero Corruption last week.

Recently, Mwangi also posted photos of President Uhuru Kenyatta insinuating that he is the man who has messed the country, and it could have rubbed the administration the wrong way.
