NAIROBI, 6TH FEBRUARY 2018: The High Court on Tuesday barred police from arresting ten NASA affiliated politicians and officials after they were granted a 100,000 shillings anticipatory bail.
Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho, Senators James Orengo, George Khaniri and Cleopas Malala, Homa Bay Woman Rep Gladys Wanga, MPs; George Aladwa, Simba Arati, Babu Owino sought for the orders after several NASA politicians were arrested last week in connection to Raila Odinga's January 30th swearing-in.
Also in the list is businessman Jimi Wanjigi, NASA CEO Norman Magaya, NASA strategist David Ndii, and ODM Executive Director Oduor Ong’wen.
In his ruling, Justice Luka Kimaru further directed that they report to the Director of Criminal Investigations on Wednesday February 7.
Taking to twitter, the National Police Service Commission has however indicated that the NASA leaders are not persons of interest in the ongoing investigation.
“The National Police Service wishes to state that neither Hassan Joho, Jimmy Wanjigi, David Ndii nor the 9 others who have sought anticipatory bail are being sought as of now in connection with commission of any crimes,” read NPSC tweet.
“Those individuals should therefore not bother turning up at the DCI offices. They are not persons of interest to the Police as of now,” read a subsequent tweet.
