Renowned blogger Cyprian Nyakundi and his counterpart Emmanuel Nyamweya could not be arraigned in court on Tuesday morning after detectives said that they were still pursuing Victoria bank fraudulent workers for colluding with the two in swindling the bank a whooping 17.5 million shillings.
The bank is at the centre of the money laundering saga.
The directorate of criminal investigation DCI on Monday arrested Nyakundi and Nyamweya for demanding a whooping 17. 5 million shillings from Victoria bank so that the two pull down a libellous statement they published in the blog.
1 million shillings had already been paid to Nyakundi and Nyamweya.

The DCI further revealed that it has in possession the amount which will be presented as exhibit in court.
Nyakundi, a renowned and fearless blogger has recently been hitting the government hard, publishing stories that a section of journalists would dare not to.
The two are further accused of blackmailing and extorting money in their daily activities.
They have been mostly targeting established business people, corporates and companies.
