@DCI_Kenya has confirmed the arrest of controversial blogger Cyprian Andama Nyakundi and an accomplice Emmanuel Nyamweya Ong’era after successful investigations touching on extortion, blackmail, and false accusations.
The blogger was arrested at Westgate and taken to Gigiri over claims of extortion after demanding Sh17.5m from Victoria Bank owners over issues of money laundering.
Months ago, the blogger was arrested over a post he made claiming that  Jubilee administration officers were allegedly bribed by Chinese officials to approve a tender.

Without divulging details of the victim, DCI conveyed that the blogger along with one Emmanuel Nyamweya had been nabbed after receiving a Sh1 million pay out.

“Detectives based at Gigiri have today afternoon arrested two suspects namely Cyprian Andama Nyakundi and Emmanuel Nyamweya Ong’era after successful investigations touching on extortion, blackmail and false accusations.
