Police in Kisii have arrested Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi and South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro.
Maangi was arrested on Monday at Kisii High School while he was waiting to welcome Deputy President William Ruto, ahead of the late Simeon Nyachae’s funeral ceremony at Gusii Stadium.
The lawmaker, a close ally of DP Ruto, was picked up from the funeral ceremony at Gusii Stadium and taken into custody.
Police have not given reasons for the arrested of Osoro and Maangi, but the latter was driven to DCI offices in Kisii town for grilling.
“We don’t know why they arrested him. They did not give a reason why they were picking him for, they only told him to enter their car before they left to Central Police Station where they are interrogating him,” an aide told The Star.
On Sunday, former ODM branch executive Samuel Omwando was arrested alongside a group of youth on allegations that they were regrouping to boo specific speakers during the funeral service.
