Activist and blogger Mildred Atty Owiso was today released on a cash bail of Ksh.20,000 by the Makadara Law Courts.

The activist of the popular Facebook page ‘buyers beware’, was arrested yesterday on allegations of causing disturbance.

Owiso was arrested at her home, by men who claimed to be police but who refused to identify themselves during the arrest.

Kenyans online took to Twitter to express their dismay over the arrest and subsequent charges with some claiming that Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko was behind Atty’s woes.

The Governor has since distanced himself from the saga insisting that that Atty is taking advantage of his position to allegedly divert attention.

“I have nothing to do with Mildred Atty Atiso’s current predicament but that does not mean I have withdrawn my demand that she files her corruption allegations against me if any with DCI or EACC failing of which I shall file a criminal libel complaint against her and her Facebook Page Buyers Beware admins,” his Facebook post reads.
