Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi was Monday morning seized by detectives from the Special Crimes Prevention Unit at the Milimani courts in Nairobi and taken to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters.
It is not clear yet what offence Nyakundi, who has severally landed in trouble over his social media postings, is being investigated for. He says he is currently being held at Muthaiga police station.
The blogger had gone to the courts for a mention of a defamation case filed by Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i after he claimed the CS was involved in an extra-marital affair.
Recently, he was charged before a Kiambu court with posting online derogatory remarks against Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, Nairobi’s Mike Sonko and Kenya Power Managing Director Ken Tarus.
He was also charged with writing derogatory statements targeting the Kikuyu community.
He denied the accusations and was freed on Ksh 2 million bond with an alternative of a Ksh 1 million cash bail for the hate speech charge.
