Jeff Koinange arrested

19 May 2015, 12:36 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - TV host Jeff Koinange has been arrested and will be arraigned before the Milimani Law Courts to answer to charges of contempt of court.

The well known and liked presenter of the highly popular show 'Jeff Koinange Live' was arrested outside his Nairobi home Tuesday morning by uniformed police officers.

He did drive himself to Court and is expected to be charged.

An attempt by the renowned television anchor to stop his arrest has failed.

Koinange tried in vain Monday to have his arrest, ordered last week by a Nairobi magistrate be stopped at the High Court as he was deemed not to have followed valid court processes.

Through lawyer Gitobu Imanyara, Koinange was forced to wait till Wednesday when the matter will be heard.

High Court judge Weldon Korir directed Koinange to serve the Attorney-General and the magistrate’s court with their application for inter-partes hearing on Wednesday.

Magistrate Maisy Chesang last week issued a warrant of arrest against the two for failing to appear in court to answer charges of contempt.

They are accused of discussing businessman Jimi Wanjigi, Sani Mbui Wanjigi and their company, the Kwacha Group during Koinange’s Jeff Koinange Live Show JKL, this despite the court order barring it.

Koinange has been charged alongside Tony Gachoka, with whom they were together on the show.

Imanyara insisted that his client was not served with a notice to stop the discussion and that thus, the arrest warrant was erroneous.

The JKL show airs on the Kenya Television Network station KTN.

As of Tuesday, Gachoka was nowhere to be seen.
