The news comes hours after Governor Nyong’o and his sister Risper Nyagoy failed to appear in court for sentencing after High Court Judge Thrispisa Cherere found them guilty of contempt for failing to include their nephews as beneficiaries for a Ksh200 million estate.

The sentencing was moved to Thursday this week.
