Nairobi Senator forced to send a special team to trace MRC leader whom he paid 20M for his freedom

Mike Sonko parted with 20 million shilling land title deed to pay surety bonds to secure the release of MRC leader in 2012. The separatist leader has since gone into hiding leaving the Nairobi Senator in awkward position.

 

September 23 2016, Chief Magistrate Daniel Ogoti of the Mombasa court gave Mike Sonko a two months ultimatum to produce Omar Mwamnuadzi, the leader of the outlawed Mombasa Republican Council (MRC).

The Nairobi Senator offered his Kes 20 million land title deed in 2012 as surety for the MRC leader who has since gone missing.

Omar Mwamnuadzi has missed sessions at Mombasa and Kwale courts, and the court has since turned the heat on Mike Sonko.

The court’s two months ultimatum to Sonko expired on Wednesday November 23 2016 and the court has now threatened to arrest the Nairobi Senator instead.

Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti said on Wednesday 23 that failure to have the Senator produce the fleeing MRC leader in court will force the court to embark on procedures to be followed when a surety fails to present an accused to court; which simply means the court will issue an arrest warrant agianst Sonko.

Sonko through his lawyer, Jared Magolo, told the court that the Nairobi Senator was collaborating with Omar Mwamnuadzi’s family to bring him in.

Daily Nation also quoted Sonko’s lawyer as saying that the flamboyant lawmaker has set an elaborate team to trace the fugitive even in Tanzania.
