President Kiir’s son while drunk assaulted his sister

DAILY NATION: South Sudan President Salva Kiir’s son was arrested in Nairobi for assaulting a family member while drunk.
He was, however, released from custody by police on Friday without being charged.
 
Nairobi county police commander Benson Kibue said that the suspect became violent prompting the family to inform the police. 
His mother, South Sudan’s First Lady Mary Ayen Mayardit, reported to the police that her son Munuti Salva Kiir, 23, was drunk and had become uncontrollable.
He quarrelled and later assaulted his sister Winnie Salva Kiir injuring her. Officers led by Muthangari chief inspector Hannington Kirimi rushed to Ms Ayen’s residence on Manyani East Road, where they arrested and took him to custody.
 
Munuti was to be charged with assault and being drunk and disorderly but was on Friday released unconditionally. “We decided to release him after the family informed us that they had solved the matter amicably,” said the police boss.
 
When Saturday Nation visited the family’s residence, members of the family said they were not aware of the incident and added that Munuti left for Juba on Thursday.
 
A Wednesday record at the police station indicated that the President’s son was placed in custody while intoxicated.
 
Meanwhile, South Sudan has written to Kenya to arrest a former senior government official who was sacked but refused to hand over.
The official is expected to surrender a firearm and diplomatic pass, among other things.
