BY NT CORRESPONDENT.
The mother to Environment CS Judy Wakhungu will spend the night in police custody after failing to raise Sh1 million to secure her freedom.
Ms Grace Sarapay Wakhungu was unable to raise Sh1 million bond to secure her release.
She will be a guest of the state at Langata Women Prison.
CS Wakhungu’s mother had been arrested after failing to pay a Sh10 million loan.
Sarapay was nabbed while attending a wedding on Wednesday afternoon August 17, 2016 in Westlands, Nairobi.
An arrest warrant had been issued against her.
She appeared before the Deputy Registrar in Milimani Commercial Court, and was put to task to explain why she should not be jailed for failing to settle the bank debt.
In a case filed against her in 2014 by Middle East Bank Kenya Limited, the financial institution sought an order to compel her to pay back their dues.
The bank told the court the Ms Wakhungu has been stubborn and never shown interest to pay the loan.
The court has now directed her to settle the debt in one week time or she be committed to a civil jail.
Proceedings resume August 24, 2016.
