Machakos governor Alfred Mutua has an impending arrest, for contempt of court.
Mid last year, in July, Machakos Environment and Land Court had given directives, that Alfred pays a businessman, one David Gitau a sum of Ksh 5.5 million, following a dumpsite case.
Alfred however, allegedly did not make an attempt to honour the order. This act prompted the principal magistrate C.N Ondieki to issue out an arrest warrant for him on Wednesday, September 1, 2021.
Unless Alfred pays the full amount, magistrate Ondieki has ordered the Machakos police station commanding officer to place the former under arrest and have him presented in court, the soonest possible.
These are command to you to arrest the said Governor, County government of Machakos unless they shall pay you the sum of Ksh as noted in the margin, together with executing officer’s expenses and fees if any, to bring the Governor Machakos county of Machakos before the court with all convenient speed.
Governor Alfred Mutua is yet to comply with the initial order, of paying the said amount.
