Who Is Simba Arati? Why Is He Feared By Government So Much?

Who Is Simba Arati? Why Is He Feared By Government So Much?

When Raila Odinga swore himself as the people's president on 30th January, one man who was hardly noticeable in the crowd is now on the receiving end of the government's wrath. 
Simba Arati, 36 years old and laid back, was put under house arrest during a NASA planned event at Jakaranda Grounds, and was largely mentioned in police circles when fighting broke out in Kawangware.
Just recently, he had his firearm license revoked by government. The government claims he is unfit to hold a gun. He quickly moved to the courts to block the police from taking his firearm but the police have made clear their intentions to defy the court order. He has since declared that he will not surrender the firearm to the state.
Many people have been asking why he is always a target of government crackdowns on politicians. The two times Dagoretti North MP keeps a very low profile and is as mysterious as leaders that came before him like Charles Njonjo and Nicholas Biwott.
