man sued jirongo arrested

A man who in August filed a bankruptcy case against former presidential aspirant Cyrus Jirongo has been arrested.

Brian Yongo sued the former Lugari MP for not paying back a Sh25 million loan in full. He accused Jirongo of paying Sh5 million of the loan advanced to him between 2014-2015.

The former legislator was arrested and taken to Muthangari Police Station on September 18 for failing to pay the loan.

“These are to command you to arrest the said J/D and unless the sum of Ksh.20 million as noted in the margin, together with the executing officers expenses fees. If any, to bring the said debtor before the court with all convenient speed,” read the court order.

He was released on September 20 after raising Sh5 million cash bail. Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa gave his Mercedes Benz as surety to help secure his release.

The businessman was arrested on Saturday as he tried to secure a loan using a fake Range Rover log book.

He was apprehended in Nairobi’s Kileleshwa area as he tried to secure a Sh4 million loan.

Yongo is apparently being held at Kileleshwa Police Station. He will is expected in court on Monday where he will be charged with using false documents to obtain a loan.
