Police arrest South Sudan rebel spokesman at Nairobi residence

Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-in-Opposition (SPLM-IO) spokesman James Gatdet Dak, who was arrested at his Nairobi residence on Wednesday, is being held at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Police Station. 

Mr Dak is likely to be deported any time from now. 

Plainclothes police officers picked him up from his Lavington estate house in Nairobi on Wednesday at around 4 p.m.

“They claimed to be Kenyan national security agents. When James asked them  the reason behind his summons, they replied they were going to discuss it in their offices,” Lam Jock, a representative of the Riek Machar-led SPLM-IO in Kenya, told Nation.co.ke after the arrest.
