Mr. Gakuyo called his arrest political.

“The arrest is political and malicious. I did not flee as claimed and I am ready to face justice if I committed a crime. The police only told me that my arrest was linked to “an ongoing case, but they are not yet informed to give details,” he said.

He also lamented that his trip was cut short after his arrest by DCI agents. He said he was looking forward to his day in court to clear things up.

Mr Gakuyo was wanted in connection with several cases of defrauding members of the Ekeza Sacco of over a billion shillings.

He was later released after agreeing to repay the money to the complainants, but police say the matter remains under investigation.
