Nyamira County Secretary Erick Onchana was Tuesday evening arrested for allegedly disregarding a court order.

Mr. Onchana, who is the secretary to the county service board, was apprehended over dues owed to Former County employee Alloys Moseti who served as a political adviser in the governor’s office before he was dismissed in 2014.

Moseti had moved to court protesting his “unprocedural” dismissal, and was awarded a compensation of Ksh.1.6 million.

The court directed the county secretary to facilitate the payment, a directive that was yet to be complied with, prompting the arrest.

A warrant for the arrest of the county secretary was issued on Friday last week but the county official is reported to have been dodging the law enforcers before he was nabbed in Nyamira town on Tuesday.

He was taken to Nyamira Police Station.
