Oscar Sudi spends 300k on cellmates at Nakuru police station

On 14th September Oscar Sudi, the Kapseret MP, spent close to 300,000 Kenyan shillings on cellmates at Nakuru police station.

The MP decided to come to the aid of cellmates who were unable to raise money for their fines and cash bails. Mr. Sudi spent over 265,000 shillings to settle the fines and bails of the said individuals. Additionally, the MP bought jackets and mattresses for cellmates who could not afford them.

Act of kindness

Didmus Barasa, the Kimilili MP revealed Oscar Sudi’s act of kindness while speaking to a local news station.

“The people he met there became his family, some of them were being detained because they failed to pay very small fines which is sad,” Mr. Barasa said.

“He bought for them 30 mattresses and jackets to beat the cold, he spent over Ksh. 265,000 for eight remandees in paying bail for them, it sounds like little money but it really made a big difference,” he added.

Mr. Barasa also explained that since the cells are tiny, all the mattresses could not fit. For this reason, officers stored some of them in stores so that future remandees can use them.

Application by the prosecution

Mr. Sudi appeared in the Nakuru Law Courts on Monday. The prosecution filed an application for him to remain in custody for a further 14 days. Sudi is facing charges of hate speech and incitement.

Chief Magistrate Josephat Kalowill give a ruling on the prosecution’s application on 16th September. For this reason, Oscar Sudi will have to spend two more nights in custody.

Didmus Barasa noted that Oscar Sudi is a very close friend of his who accommodated him when police officers raided his home on 11th September.

“Arresting someone who is loitering in town at night, I mean those are people who you engage and if they have sufficient reason you can release them,” Didmus Barasa said.
