Zipo.co.ke has learnt that Mr Ndubi denied the charges before Milimani resident magistrate Electer Riany and was released on a cash bail of Sh30,000.

The renown lawyer is currently representing Dagoretti North Member of Parliament Simba Arati after the government revoked his firearm amid a crackdown on Nasa/National Resistance Movement members.

Arati is a vocal member of the now proscribed movement which is led by Opposition lader Raila Odinga and whose self-proclaimed General, Miguna Miguna, was deported to Canada last week.
