It emerges that Kisumu County Assembly Speaker Onyango Oloo is currently a man in trouble, as he continues spending his day in detention awaiting his arraignment.
The lawyer cum politician presented himself to the police in Mombasa on Saturday, after the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji approved his arrest over graft allegations.
The former Kisumu Central MP aspirant is accused of receiving bribes to allow the inflation of prices in the construction of Kisumu's Lake Basin Development Authority (LBDA) mall.
He on Saturday noon presented himself at the Central Police Station in Mombasa, in the company of 20 Kisumu MCAs, after which he was booked into the cells.
Oloo could be seen sweating profusely behind the bars, in one of Mombasa's most feared detention facility, which lacks among others, toilets, windows or beddings.
The leader who had been attending a leaders retreat at the Pride Inn Hotel since Thursday rubbished claims that he was on the run, remarks that were echoed by Mombasa Urban DCIO Anthony Muriithi.
"These allegations that he was on the run are not true. “He presented himself to us and is awaiting transportation to Nairobi," said the police boss.
The police said that they are looking for the other persons named in the scandal, as the mall remains non functional years after completion.
