EACC detectives have arrested Migori governor Okoth Obado’s bodyguard outside the Milimani law court.
The detectives put handcuffs on John Chacha Alias Mwita Moses Mogaya after taking away his gun.
“He was arrested for using academic certificates belonging to another public officer named ‘Chacha’ to secure employment,” EACC said on Monday.
EACC said they conducted investigations and established that John used certificates belonging to the said ‘Chacha’ to get entry to the Administration Police Service in 2006.
The DPP gave consent to arrest and initiate criminal proceedings against John with the offence of impersonation of a person named in a certificate contrary to Section 384 of the Penal Code.
John is to be taken to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations offices for questioning.
He will be arraigned before the Anti-Corruption Court in Milimani, Nairobi today.
John was arrested when Obado was already in court to face charges of aiding, abetting, and financing the murder of Rongo university student Sharon Otieno.
Obado arrived in court on Monday after spending three nights at the Gigiri police cells.
There was no VIP treatment for the embattled governor while in custody. His three nights behind bars were humbling.

Sharon, who seven-months pregnant at the time of her abduction, was found dead in Kodera Forest on September 5.

On Sunday, DPP Noordin Haji directed the DCI to pursue and arrest the hit men in the murder of Sharon.
“Ensure that the hit men and other persons who have been adversely mentioned are arrested,” Haji said in a statement on Sunday.
