Reprieve To Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi As Court Rules In His Favor

Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi and Emmanuel Nyamwea were on the 20th day of January 2020 arrested for allegedly trying to extort Ksh 17.5 million from Victoria Commercial Bank Ltd. According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations Twitter account, Cyprian and his counterpart were arrested after “successful investigations touching on extortion, blackmail, and false accusations.”

The DCI also said that the two had just received Ksh. 1 Million from one of their victims being a down payment of Ksh 17.5 million they had earlier demanded. This was to be as a precondition for pulling down libelous posts appearing on a website allegedly owned by the suspects.

However, In what comes as a reprieve to the blogger, a high court has this morning ruled that the evidence presented before the court by the DCI was obtained illegally therefore inadmissible before the court. This means the case that has lasted for over a year now could finally flop.
