A viral video of Starehe Member of Parliament (MP) calling on government of Kenya (GoK) to remove Chinese, Pakistanis, Tanzania and Ugandans who have invaded and are competing with Kenyans in various locations to do business has not been received well by a section of Kenyans.
Kenyans have called out the MP for his xenophobic remarks; rebuking him for being reckless.
The chief editor of this site called for the arrest of the MP.
Others have also joined in in calling for the arrest of the MP for inciting conflict between Kenyans and her neighbors (Uganda and Tanzania).

I just watched a video clip of Starehe MP Musician Jaguar in Kamukunji threatening to forcefully evict foreigners from their business premises.
This is a dangerous path to take. This is how xenophobia started in South Africa. He should let the government do its work.

This Jaguar MP is also my Mp. Its immoral by an elected leader to lie to the magnitude we have just witnessed. How can you arrest, take someone to airport, put him or her on flight ? How do you facilitate and execute extradition order ? Lets not bleed lies this much. https://t.co/bbtYJZregg

@NPSOfficial_KE @DCI_Kenya Jaguar MP for Starehe be arrested and charged. Does he know how many Kenyans live and work outside our borders, has he seen xenophobia in SA. This is very shameless and careless. The clip is something wouldn't wanna share here. @MikeSonko
