Murang'a - A Tanzanian preacher who was arrested in Gatanga town, Muranga County, early this week after he failed to produce documents allowing him to be in the country was Friday arraigned in court.
Appearing before the Magistrate Kadir Lorot, the accused, Peter Mwai Sulei was charged with being in the country illegally and failing to present legal documents to that effect.
The prosecution, led by Chief Inspector Nancy Muthuri told the court that the preacher was arrested at Gatanga during a crusade he was holding and on being asked for his temporary permit, he became uncooperative.
