Kapseret MP, Oscar Sudi, presented himself to the Langas Police Station after evading arrest on Friday.
The MP, who the police wanted for alleged hate speech, made an appearance at the Langas Police Station on Sunday morning.
On his side were Soy MP, Caleb Kositany, Uasin Gishu Woman Representative, Gladys Shollei (also his lawyer) and Kimilili MP, Didmus Barasa.
On why he was not home when the police invaded his house, Sudi said that he was away, but did not elaborate further. Instead, he stated that the drama that rippled through Kapseret on Friday night was ‘unnecessary’.
“As a law-abiding citizen, I have presented myself at the Langas Police Station early this morning even before the officers arrive. It was unnecessary to be treated with a lot of drama by sending a contigent of police officers to my home. I was away the time police officers arrived at my place. Thank you all for standing with me,” he said.
Night of drama
The news follow a night of drama at Sudi’s home that saw seven people arrested. Among them were two officer attached to the Presidential Escort Unit. Their mission there remains a mystery. Several people sustained injuries, including one who suffered a gunshot and another cut by a machete.
The police camped outside Sudi’s home for a better part of Friday night into Saturday morning. Irate area residents frustrated their efforts though, using tractors, logs and stones to block the police from accessing Sudi’s home.
Reports now indicate that Sudi will be airlifted to Nairobi, where the National Cohesion and Integration Commission will question him.
He will also appear in court tomorrow.
Sudi has been on the radar of security agencies following his utterances that were seen as an attack to the President and his mother.
Also arrested, then released was Johanna Ng’eno, Emurrua Dikirr MP, who was also arrested on grounds of incitement.
