One of the two youth who had been arrested for allegedly publishing false claims that Interior CS Fred Matiang’i was in ICU battling Covid-19 has been released.
19 year old Emmanuel Kimutai Kosgei was released this morning by DCI detectives.
Kimutai, who is physically challenged, is said to have registered his mobile sim card using his brothers identity card. The sim card was the the one being traced by DCI sleuths and reportedly behind the publication.
Kimutai and his brother Isaac Kibet Yego were picked up at their home in Ngeria on Saturday evening and taken to DCI headquarters in Nairobi for further interrogation.
Isaac is still in custody and will take plea at Milimani Law Courts this morning.
