The Kiambu law courts was Tuesday treated to theatrics when former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko appeared in court with a nurse and a doctor.
Earlier Sonko was allegedly taken ill and rushed to Nairobi hospital following stomach complications just hours before his arraignment in court for two key rulings that would determine his much-awaited fate after spending a week in custody.
The ex governor was picked from the hospital by police upon any attempts to skip court sessions.
According to one of his aides, Sonko complained of a stomach problem that worsened over the weekend. He is said to have developed massive blood pressure that prompted his admission.
Drama was witnessed when police stormed Nairobi hospital and whisked him away. He was driven to court in an ambulance accompanied by the two medics.
However, Mike Sonko got a reprieve after he was freed on Ksh300,000 bond with a surety of a similar amount after denying assault and robbery with violence charges.
The former Nairobi Governor who is facing terror-related charges is expected to appear before Kahawa West court magistrate for another ruling.The police had made an application to be allowed to detain Sonko for 30 days as they investigate terror-related charges.
Last week, Sonko was arraigned in a Kiambu court where he faced various counts of assault and forcible entry of property in Buruburu Phase Four.
The former county boss is also facing graft charges.
