Nairobi - The mechanic who was arrested by police in connection with the dissapearance of a presidential vehicle has been released.

This was confirmed Friday by police sources who intimated that the mechanic, a MR Aggrey Ochieng will be used as a witness in a case seeking to identify the real perpetrators of the theft.

The BMW vehicle, was stolen last week and recovered Wednesday in Tororo Uganda.

Ochieng was last week arrested by police in what was initially stressed as a motive to get the vehicle back, allegedly because the mechanic had handled the vehicle in a Nakuru garage.

He was also charged by police with having a gun without a certificate, accusations he had vehemently denied.

The car has already arrived in Nairobi and has been taken to the CID headquarters in the city.
