Sonko arrested in Voi


Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been apprehended in Voi.This came hours after the DPP ordered his arrest.During a press conference in Nairobi this morning, DPP Noordin Haji announced that the governor would be questioned over the loss of Sh357 million of county funds.

Haji said his office had enough evidence to charge the governor.He ordered police to probe attempts to hinder the investigation.Officers from Nairobi County Government who facilitated or benefitted from the irregular procurement and payments were listed as County Secretary Peter Mbugua; Head Supply Chain Management Patrick Mwangangi; Negotiation, Tender Opening and Evaluation Committee members Edwin Kariuki, Lawrence Mwangi, Preston Mwandiki and Clerical Officers Wambua Ndaka and Andrew Nyasiego.

This comes a few weeks after Sonko failed to stop the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) from investigating him over corruption.The agency is also investigating the governor over alleged past criminal records.
