The High Court has ordered the arrest and detention of former President Daniel Moi’s son Philip Moi for failure to pay the maintenance of his estranged wife Russana Pluda Moi.
Judge GBM Kariuki also dismissed Phillip’s application to reduce the maintenance fee from 250,000 to 60,000 a month for his estranged wife Russana Pluda Moi, made on 24th June 2010 by Justice Roseline Nambuye.
Justice George Kariuki ruled that Phillip was not a man of straw and ordered that he be arrested and detained at Industrial police station for one month until he pays the full maintenance of 250,000 shillings.
Russana’s lawyer had said she had not received maintenance fee since November last year.
Philip Moi’s lawyer has appealed against the decision.
