The decision to arrest the Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko was made two days ago by the DPP Noordin Haji.
In scenes straight from the gangland underworld, the senior police officer at the coastal region Mr. Rashid Yakub draw everyone’s attention when he demonstrated that he had some personal coup with the governor by fighting him while chained.
A multi-agency team of officers drawn from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), and the Flying Squad were spotted trailing the governor with no decorum.
The initial plan was to hold him at the police cells inside the Standard Gauge Railway station in Voi and put him on the afternoon train from Mombasa to Nairobi, but the idea was shelved after Mr. Rashid Yakub started becoming rowdy at the railway station.
The arresting officers alerted their supervisors at Vigilance House in Nairobi of the chaos in Voi, who scrambled a police helicopter from Mombasa to go ferry Mr Sonko to Nairobi.
As the helicopter prepared to take off from Moi International Airport in Mombasa, the governor was moved from the SGR station to the Ikanga Airstrip under heavy security, led by Coast Regional Police Commissioner Rashid Yakub and Taita-Taveta Police Commander Saidi Kiprotich.
It has been revealed that the rowding nature of the Mr. Rashid was championed by the fact that he is a blood cousin to the former CEC gayana.
Remember Gayana was sacked by the governor on the ground of corruption, and this could be the right moment Mr. Rashid could revenge for his cousin.
