Police are holding blogger Cyprian Nyakundi for claiming that a senior Kenya Revenue Authority official had travelled out of the country and failed to self-quarantine after returning home.
The blogger, who presented himself at Nairobi’s Central Police Station on Tuesday afternoon after receiving summons from DCI detectives, is still being held there.
Nairobi Region Police Commander Philip Ndolo told the Informer that Mr Nyakundi is required to respond to more accusations that the police need answers for.
Another blogger, Robert Alai, was on Monday charged with publishing false information on the Covid-19 pandemic. He had been arrested on Friday last week.
Mr Alai was accused of spreading panic by suggesting that the government could be hiding Covid-19 related deaths at the port of Mombasa.
