The son of former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero spent the night at Gigiri police cells, just moments after the court released his father on bail.
While Kidero spent the second night at Integrity Center because his lawyers were not able to process his Sh2 million bail on time, his son Ronald Kidero who runs the Kidero Foundation, was arrested for selling adulterated fuel.
Ronald is associated with a petrol station along Kiambu Road.
“Someone complained that he fueled in that petrol station and his car got spoilt. We are likely to charge him with malicious damage to property,” a CID officer said.
Earlier in the day, his father denied three counts of corruption-related offences.
Kidero was taken to court at about 9am, but took plea to the charges at 3.17pm because the prosecution was trying to arrest other suspects to be charged together with the former Governor.
The prosecution said the former Governor committed the offence of conspiracy leading to loss of public funds amounting to Sh213 million for services not rendered.
He was also accused of receiving benefits of Sh10 million from Lodwar Wholesalers Limited on September 11, 2014.
Kidero faced another count of receiving Sh14 million from Lodwar Wholesalers Limited on August 29, 2014. He denied the charges.
He was given a Sh2 million bail among other bond terms.
