Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has two months to produce MRC leader Omar Mwamnuadzi.
The senator however asked for more time to find out Mwamnuadzi’s whereabouts when he appeared before chief magistrate Daniel Ogoti on Friday.
The senator had deposited three title deeds and assured court that he would ensure the leader will appear in court.
He has missed sessions at Mombasa and Kwale courts.
He and nine others were accused of being members of an outlawed group.
Mwamnuadzi was also accused, alongside his wife Maimuna Hamisi, of having weapons including firearms.
They are also facing two counts of incitement to violence and having material used in witchcraft.
“I pledge to make sure the accused appears before this court on the date that will be decided,” he had affirmed.
He said that he was aware of the repercussions of the accused’s absence from court, including losing his property.
Sonko said he will discuss the matter with the MRC leader’s wife and children who were in court.
He said he last heard from Mwamnuadzi when he fell sick and was admitted at Coast Provincial General Hospital.
But the prosecution noted hospital documents presented in court were fake and that Mwamnuadzi had intentionally skipped court.
The Senator accused the prosecution of delaying the case causing some of the accused to miss proceedings.
A warrant was also issued for the arrest of Juma Mwakusema who did not attend court.
Proceedings resume November 23.
