The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

On Au­gust 30, Nairobi Se­na­tor Mike Sonko was in court to ex­plain the where­abouts of MRC leader Omar Mwamnu­adzi. Sonko was sum­moned af­ter Mwamnu­adzi failed to show up dur­ing a hear­ing of his case in Mom­basa. Sonko stood surety for the MRC leader charged with be­ing in pos­ses­sion of a firearm and sev­eral bul­lets. A Mom­basa court re­leased Mwamnu­adzi on a Sh10 mil­lion bond af­ter he had been at Shimo la Tewa Prison for about two months. In­tel­li­gence re­ports showed mem­bers of the Mom­basa Repub­li­can Coun­cil are train­ing and recruiting for­mer se­cu­rity per­son­ell. The Mom­basa county com­mis­sioner and Coast re­gional co­or­di­na­tor de­nied re­ceiv­ing such re­ports but said they will in­ves­ti­gate. A source said the group has a camp in Likoni, where the train­ing and re­cruit­ment are car­ried out. But the Likoni po­lice boss said no crim­i­nals com­mit of­fences in Kwale and hide in Likoni.
