Former presidential aspirant Cyrus Jirongo has been ordered to deposit a sum of Ksh.5 million or face remand.
This comes after the ex-Lugari MP was on Wednesday arraigned in court for failing to pay a Ksh.20 million debt owed to businessman Brian Yongo following a court order.
The former Lugari MP spent Tuesday night in a cell at Muthangari Police Station in Nairobi following his arrest over a Sh20 million debt.
Nairobi Deputy County Commander, Richard Kerich said the former Lugari lawmaker was arrested under a civil warrant and detained at the Muthangari Police Station.Kenyans have expressed their reaction on twitter in regard to his arrest.
