Grace Sarapay Wakhungu mother to Environment Cabinet Secretary Judy Wakhungu has been brought to court under warrant of arrest over an alleged unpaid bank loan amounting to 10 million shillings.
Ms Sarapay is alleged to have been attending a wedding on Wednesday August 17 afternoon in Westlands, when her celebratory mood was cut short by the arresting officers, who led her straight to Nairobi court.
The mother to the CS was forced to appear before deputy registrar commercial court Milimani, Nairobi to explain why she should not settle a bank debt in a case filed against her in 2014 by Middle East Bank Kenya limited seeking the court to compel her to pay the debt.
The bank complains that the woman has been stubborn and has never shown interest to pay.
The court directed her to settle the debt in one week time or she be committed to a civil jail.
She was given a one million security bond.
The case will be mentioned on august 24.
