Japanese photographer Yasuyoshi Chiba was arrested on Friday afternoon at a farm belonging to the Brookside dairy company which is owned by Kenyatta's family. A report on the News24 site notes that he had planned to photograph the company logo after the opposition National Super Alliance named Brookside as one of three companies its supporters should boycott as part of a ‘resistance’ campaign following disputed presidential elections.
