NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 25 – The High Court in Kisumu on Thursday ordered the arrest of the city’s Governor over contempt of court.
Lady Justice Tripsisa Cherere issued warrants of arrest against Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o and his sister Risper Nyagoy after they failed to honour summonses issued by her court.
The judge directed Kisumu County Commander Benson Maweu effect the arrests while committing the duo to a month of civil jail each.
The two were required to appear in court for the hearing of a dispute over an estate.
They were last year directed to present account books for their father’s estate after their nephews sued them for disinheriting them of a multi-million estate left by the late Hesbone Shimei Nyong’o.
