Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko will spend five more nights in custody.

On Thursday the court pushed his bail hearing to Tuesday, according to Kiambu court administrator.

Sonko was on Wednesday evening transferred to Kamiti Maximum GK Prison from the Gigiri Police Station where he was being held.

Reports emerged on Wednesday evening that an officer from the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit had sworn an affidavit to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) accusing Sonko of having terror links.

Chief Inspector Newton Thimangu, in the affidavit, claims to be in possession of intelligence information about Sonko allegedly recruiting a militia group to disrupt the peace and stability of the nation.

According to the Inspector, Sonko is suspected to have been procuring military attire associated with terrorist groups that pose a threat to the national security and sovereignty of the country.

Thimangu's affidavit

“…the suspect has started arming his private security agents with full military attire namely military boots, military jungle uniform, and firearms.

The suspect who was in the company of an unknown person had worn militia attire and together with the suspect they were both spotted in public in the full glare of the media and in front of a huge mass of people in a public rally.

I have intelligence information that the suspect is connected to the financing of terrorism activities and he is in the advanced stage of procuring arms and ammunition using a wide syndicate which is complex and sophisticated.

The conduct of suspect specifically from his social media accounts whose has a huge following and using his influence his role in facilitating intended attacks cannot be underestimated, as he is highly likely to interfere with potential witnesses and recovery that police expect to make,” the affidavit read.
