Kenya’s ex Nairobi governor Mike Sonko is held for 30 days in detention probing an investigation over terror links according to Directorate of criminal Investigation. He is currently in one of the most feared Kenya’s prisons as he awaits the next step.
Sonko’s bail out appeal was thrown out yesterday as the DCI handles the matter.
According to kenya’s Citizen News, Chief Inspector Newton Thimangu, in an affidavit, claims to be in possession of intelligence information about Sonko allegedly recruiting a militia group to disrupt the peace and stability of the nation.
“…the suspect has started arming his private security agents with full military attire namely military boots, military jungle uniform and firearms,” read the affidavit.
Sonko who have been “freely talking” now faces possible imprisonment.
The ex governor was uprooted from the office last month over corruption allegations. Kenyan media sources have also cited his fall out with the President thus losing support from his fellow party members Jubilee (Kenya’s ruling coalition).
His fate now lingers in the dark as he awaits the next step from the authority.
