Starehe MP Charles Njagua is a man under fire following his threats to deport all the Chinese and other foreign traders in the country if the government doesn’t act in time.

On Monday Jaguar led Kamukunji residents together with other leaders in demonstrating against the foreigners, Njaguar said he was giving a 24hour ultimatum to the government to act failure to which he will lead the deportation exercise.

“If there are competitions from the Chinese nationals, then there will be no business for you people. Recently we witnessed Matiang’i claiming he had only deported only six Chinese nationals yet we have hundreds in here. We are giving the government 24-hour ultimatum to deport them failure to which I will lead the locals in storming their shops and ejecting them” threatened Jaguar.

The artist cum politician has since been facing criticism by a good number of Kenyans who termed the move as a mere politics and hates speech while questioning his legislative role towards the move.

Jaguar has been accused of neglecting his legislative role which includes formulating policies that protect local businesses as well as favor the global firms.

The first time MP has been warned over a looming disaster with Kenyans comparing his move to how xenophobia executions started in South Africa.

“Very irresponsible leaders, this is hate speech, the current market is an open markert to all, anyone can do business anywhere in the world Wakenya kazi ni kubishana na kupiga siasa, Bure Kabisa”
