Former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga was brought to the Nakuru court on Monday morning under tight security.
He is represented by Martha Karua, who is a senior lawyer.
This is the second time he has been brought before Chief Magistrate Kipkurui Kibelyon.
However, he could not be charged initially because the prosecution wanted to amend the indictment.
Njenga, who was questioned by DCI detectives in Nairobi on Thursday, is alleged to have spoken at a meeting in Wanyororo, Nakuru County on May 11, 2023, to ‘encourage support for the illegal Mungiki group.
Njenga is also accused of involvement in criminal activities.
The police accuse him of inviting people to the Wanyoro meeting where he would give instructions regarding Mungiki.
He is also accused of owning government shops where he was allegedly found with “a military bag strap, belonging to the National Police which is suspected to be stolen or obtained illegally”.
The police said they will not allow anyone to meet in the area on behalf of escorting Njenga to court.
This is happening while Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki says they will destroy any plans to revive the Mungiki group.
