Kenya: MRC Leader Arrested

Detectives have arrested top MRC leader Salim Ali Goga who is among those sought by police.

He was arrested in his home in Kwale by detectives appointed to track down the group's financiers.

The arrest comes a day after the group launched a fresh bid to stop elections at the Coast after they appealed a court ruling that dismissed their case to stop IEBC from conducting elections.
