In court yesterday, the hospital submitted a report indicating that the former Governor should be closely monitored by a doctor.

Meanwhile, Sonko’s lawyers John Khaminwa and Assa Nyakundi want the investigating officer to appear in court for examination on the allegations that the former governor is linked to terrorism and was wearing military attire.

ATPU barred from interrogating Sonko in hospital.

The State told the court that Chief Inspector Newton Thimangu is out of the country until February 21.

Thimangu claimed that they suspect Sonko is recruiting a militia group to disrupt peace and stability of the nation which could lead to anarchy and civil disobedience.

He claimed the DCI has information that the former governor has been procuring uniforms resembling the military attire which he has been spotted wearing in disregard of laws outlawing wearing of military fatigue.

In the case, the State claims Sonko is financing terrorism activities and is in an advanced stage of procuring arms and ammunition using a secret syndicate.
