, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 8 — Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet has ordered Mavoko MP Patrick Makau to turn himself in for questioning over the arson attack on an Administration Police post in Syokimau on Wednesday.

“He knows what he did and it was wrong,” Boinnet said of the legislator who is believed to have gone into hiding after leading the demonstrations that led to the arson.

The camp was burnt down by boda boda operators during a protest against the killing of human rights lawyer Willie Kimani, his client Josephat Mwenda and a taxi driver Joseph Muiruri.

It is believed that the deceased were held at the camp before their murder for which there are four Administration Police officers being held in police custody.

Boinnet who was on a tour of a newly constructed forensic lab at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters on Kiambu road said progress had been made in the probe of the murders but declined to reveal if the police planned on taking more suspects into custody.
