Nairobi's governor, Mike Sonko has on Friday responded to his arrest on suspicion of corruption by accusing Kenya's anti-graft body of "shallow work" and "insubordination".

"I stand for justice and I am more than ready for the court process where I will unleash my armoury against these conspirators," Governor Mike Sonko says in the statement issued by his office.

The BBC's Emmanuel Igunza in Nairobi says Mr Sonko is a divisive politician who has previously faced allegations of drug trafficking and money laundering, which he denies.

Mr Sonko has long claimed that he is the subject of a political witch hunt, and his letter issued on Friday also accuses his opponents of setting "political traps" for him.

"I want to confidently state from the onset that I am more than ready for the lawful course that will help us know the truth," his letter adds.
