The bodyguards of the Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko have been re-arrested just moments after the county boss paid bail were released.
The four had been arrested by law enforcement authorities for causing chaos and resisting arrest.
This comes just a day after the county boss stormed the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) headquarters on Tuesday amid attempts by law enforcement officers manning the entrance to stop him.
There was an eruption of chaos as the Nairobi governor made his dramatic entry at the EACC offices as police officers to lobbed teargas to disperse the rowdy supporters who had shown up to demonstrate their solidarity with the embattled governor.
Sonko has maintained that the summons to the EACC that he has been subjected to are politically motivated, saying that he has not engaged in any corrupt dealings as governor.
As I faced @EACCKenya officers today as per their invitations, I told them that corruption should not be fought selectively. We must get united as a nation in fighting these vices, " he tweeted
EACC has been probing the governor over payments he received from an individual said to be his close friend and who has been given a tender by the county government of Nairobi.
Sonko has however refuted the allegations, saying that the payment he received was for a piece of land he leased out.
