Court issues arrest warrant for cop

By PKEMOI NG’ENOH | May 12th 2014 | 1 min read


Nairobi, Kenya: A Makadara court has ordered Nairobi police boss Benson Kibue to arrest and present Embakasi police station commander (OCS) Victor Nyongesa to court on Monday.

Chief Magistrate Emily Ominde issued the order on Friday after the officer failed to appear in court for the third time.

Mr Nyongesa has been summoned three times after arresting five persons who had a court injunction restraining anyone from interfering with a disputed piece of land that they own.

The OCS stormed the property on the night of February 12 with his officers and arrested Patrick Muinde, Tom Ombui, Steve Musyimi Maswili, Fredrick Silas and Isaac Menda, and charged them with trespassing with intention to commit a felony before Senior Resident Magistrate Evelyn Nyongesa.

The five were employees of Fedrick Kathanzu Kavuthi and James Kyalo Nguma, who are embroiled in a land tussle with a private developer who is claiming ownership.

The defendants’ lawyer Nzuki Mwinzi opposed the charges against his clients and requested the court to summon the OCS to explain why he had disregarded the court order issued by Justice Onesmus Mutungi.
