BY JOHN WERU,NAIROBI,12TH FEB 2018-Human rights lawyer  Harun Ndubi who  has been released on a cash bail of Sh30,000 by the traffic court.This is after he was was arrested on Sunday night on suspicion of drunk driving.

Ndubi has been charged with causing an obstruction on the Jakaya Kikwete road with his Toyota Harrier and refusing to take a breathalyser test.

He has denied both charges and insisted to the officers who took him into custody that he must have been drugged, hence his disoriented state.

Conflicting opion

While police inist he was arrested while drunk ,his lawyers and close associate claim his  arrest is political.Ndumbi has been representing the opposition NASA in many cases especially those challenging the validity of president Kenyatta in the August 8 2017 election and even the repeat poll held on 26th October same year.

Those who have a different point of view accuse police  of attempts to portray the reputable advocate in bad faith and embarrass him in public based on his position.

The case will be mentioned on February 23.
