VIDEO: Heavy security as Sonko arraigned at Milimani Law Courts
A contingent of heavily armed police officers has been deployed around the Milimani Law Courts as Governor Mike Sonko is arraigned.
Governor Sonko was arrested on Friday over irregular procurement and payment of over Ksh.357 million.
He spent the weekend at the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) police cells.
The heavy security deployment is meant to avert any chaotic scenes that may occur should supporters of the governor take to the streets to protest.
Traffic flow near the Milimani Law Courts has also been diverted even as anti-riot police remain on standby at various locations in the City centre.
The Governor has already been presented in court before Anti-Corruption Court Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti.
