Advocate Lewis Uriri who was instructed by Hussein said Moyo was questioned and subsequently arrested and charged.

“The constitutional requirements were complied with. The charges were put to him. He deposed a warned and cautioned statement and thereafter a request was made that he be released to his lawyers and we duly executed an indemnity. As regards when he appears in court that is entirely the discretion of the police,” Uriri told The Herald.
