nkaisseryOn Thursday, Kenyans on Twitter revived their famous and widely popular hashtag ‘Someone Tell’ to criticise and to praise Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery in equal measure.

The hashtag ‘Someone Tell Nkaissery’ came about as a result of the arrest of Billow Kerrow. The senator was arrested on Wednesday at the Wilson Airport and detained at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters over claims that there were mass graves in Mandera. Five other Mandera MPs were also arrested.

The arrest came hours after Kerrow had apologised over the remarks he made, following a legal action warning by Cabinet Secretary Nkaissery if he did not retract his statement. Joseph Nkaissery warned that leaders and journalists who made “alarmist” statements with regards to the mass graves that were later found to be non-existent should apologise by Thursday December 10, or face arrest.
