The High Court in Nairobi has issued a warrant of arrest against former Lugari legislator Cyrus Jirongo over a Ksh.20 million loan balance.

The deputy registrar, in a letter addressed to Muthangari OCS on Tuesday, directed the police to arrest the former presidential aspirant for reportedly failing to pay businessman Brian Yongo a loan balance.

The registrar further directed Jirongo to pay the expenses of the executing officers including fare and fuel.

“These are to command you to arrest the said J/D and unless the sum of Ksh.20 million as noted in the margin, together with the executing officers expenses fees. If any, to bring the said debtor before the court with all convenient speed,” reads the order.

Businessman Yongo has accused Jirongo of failing to pay him the balance of a loan he advanced him. He allegedly loaned Jirongo Ksh.25 million between 2014 and 2015 but the former politician has since paid only Ksh.5 million.

According to Yongo, the entire loan was to be settled in three installments.

In his argument, the businessman cited Jirongo’s failure to settle the debt as his reason of moving to court in order to recover the money.
