Oswago, Chickengate broker Oyombra due in court after arrest

Former IEBC CEO James Oswago and a broker at the centre of the Chickengate saga, Trevy Oyombra, were arrested today over the scam linked to British firm Smith and Ouzman, whose top executives were jailed in the UK.

The two who were nabbed from their Nairobi homes by officials from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) were due in court later in the day, according to officials at Integrity Centre.

They were arrested alongside Hamida Ali Kibwana, all accused of corruption in printing contracts for materials of the last General Election where prices were inflated by huge amounts for kick backs.

"They were picked up this morning and will be going to court any time now,"

an EACC official said.

Oswago has previously denied involvement in any corrupt activities when he was the IEBC Chief Executive Officer.

Nominated Senator Njoroge arrested after gun drama with Vivo boss

Nominated Senator Paul Njoroge was arrested late on Tuesday after he drew his gun on Vivo Energy Managing Director Polycarp Igathe and shot twice in the air in a dispute over a fuel station.

The gun drama occurred at a Shell fuel station on the Nakuru-Naivasha highway earlier on Tuesday.

The nominated Senator recorded a statement at the Naivasha Police Station before his arrest.

He is due to appear in court on Wednesday to face charges.

The dispute got ugly after Vivo Energy staff went to the station to take possession.

Senator Njoroge could be seen in video footage seated on a chair as Igathe stood near him.

They engaged in a heated conversation before Senator Njoroge drew the gun and shot in the air twice, saying nobody would take possession of the station.

Court orders police to arrest DCI boss

The Inspector General of police has been ordered by the High Court to arrest the Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Ndegwa Muhoro for failing to bring to book two police officers accused of murdering a businessman two years ago.

Lady Justice Jessie Lessit directed IG Joseph Boinnet to personally effect the arrest of Ndegwa Muhoro  and produce him in court on March 7, 2017.

Muhoro is required to explain why he has not arrested and produced in court David Lenkaidayo and Caristus Ekidor Apalia who are being sought for the murder of Stephen Gichuru Mwihaki on May 17 , 2015.

A warrant of arrest for the two officers was issued in January 2016 and two years down the line they have not been apprehended.

When the case came up before Justice Jessit , the prosecution said despite a warrant of arrest and summons being issued by the court to the DCI  neither him nor his representative have appeared before court to explain the position.
