A warrant of arrest has been issued against Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip.

This is after he failed to attend a mention of a case between him and 32-year-old Joy Makena at the Nanyuki Court. 

At the court session, his lawyers argued that Anwar sustained injuries on Sunday and was admitted at a hospital. 

Principal Magistrate Ben Mararo said Anwar should be arrested if he is not admitted in the hospital as alleged or present himself to the police for failing to show up in the Monday session. 

The proceedings come after Senator  Anwar and Joy Makena reached an out-of-court agreement where the latter agreed to pay Mkena's medical bills. 

However, Makena later changed her mind, saying she was coerced to enter into the agreement by the Senator. 

"He is threatening the others who were not shot. He says if I refuse that money the two will be jailed.

So, if it were you, you would have thought of accepting, a poor person has no rights. My father was telling me to forgive him because I am already disabled.

"I am now disabled and many people are depending on me. So if I get help in this case I am ready to go to court with him," Joy Makena said.
