Four people employed by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko were rearrested immediately after the county boss paid a Sh100,000 cash bail for each of them at the Milimani Law Courts Wednesday.

The aides were seized as they emerged from the basement cells of the court building. They were arraigned Wednesday morning over with wilfully resisting arrest during Mr Sonko’s chaotic date with the anti-graft agency on Tuesday.

It was not immediately clear why they were re-arrested.

The suspects, John Abok, Joseph Mwangi, Kennedy Odhiambo and Richard Bosire, were led into a waiting vehicle which had a civilian number plate.

Earlier Wednesday, State Prosecutor Kennedy Panyako told the court that the four repulsed a move by five police officers to arrest them.

They faced a second charge of taking part in an unlawful assembly.

The third indictment was that they created disturbance at Nairobi’s Integrity Centre by shouting at police officers and using demeaning language.
