Six NTSA officials were forced to spend the night at the Muthiaga police station after they were arrested by the Anti-terror police on Wednesday.
Hot News has learned that a total of 68 NTSA officials were nabbed on Wednesday morning after the ATPU raided NTSA offices in Upper hill.
The raid was carried out after it emerged that the car used by terrorist to hit the DusitD2 Complex on January 15th was not properly registered.
Another car with the same registration was found a day later in Kitengela.
“We released all the others but they had to report here in the morning. We had to take the six to Muthaiga police in the evening. They include the director of licensing and registration, ICT manager and four staff from the licensing department. We are piecing together information and will keep the public posted on when we will take them to court,” said a detective who was part of the raid.
On Wednesday, the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit obtained orders to detain an NTSA official Augustine Musembi for 30 days.
Musembi is suspected to have aided registration of the vehicle used by the terrorists to attack Dusit Complex in Riverside.
Senior Resident Magistrate Caroline Nzibe granted custodial orders sought by ATPU.
The police raid at NTSA paralyzed services at the authority.
Yesterday, NTSA had to turn away members of the public from seeking services especially car registrations
Those who visited NTSA offices said they were told normal services will resume on Monday since there is a shortage of staff.
“I visited NTSA today morning and I was told normal services will resume on Monday,” said Benji Ouma who a City resident.
Several inquiry calls made by members of the public to the Authority also went unanswered.
