BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,15TH MARCH 2018-Okiya Omtatah has been arrested for contempt of court.
According to Milimani Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi, he issued a warrant of arrest because the activist has been failing to appear in court for the hearing of a criminal case in which he was charged alongside other protestors several years ago.
The activist had allegedly sent someone to tell the magistrate’s court that he was appearing before the High Court and would go to the trial court as soon as he concluded the matter in the higher court.
However, the magistrate said that he has failed to appear before his court on several occasions.
Mr Omtatah is being held at Kilimani Police Station.
