Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Kipchumba Sudi is not a free man and will spend two more days at Nakuru Central Police following the decision by the Nakuru Magistrate Court to deny him bail.
The embattled Member of Parliament had been on the run from the police dragnet for the better part of the weekend. Several security officers had camped around the MP’s home since Friday evening in a bid to arrest the MP after addressing members of the public in Eldoret town where he remained defiant. Sudi was accused of terming some words that were considered disrespectful to the head of State together with his close family.
During the search, one police officer was injured on his shoulder by a machete while one of the MP’s supporter was shot and injured.Two elite security officers were also found in the legislator’s compound during the siege with some alleging that one of the Presidential Escort Unit Guard escaped along the legislator in a Toyota Land cruiser.
The member of parliament surrendered himself to the Langat Police Station in Eldoret on 13th September 2020 and claimed that he voluntarily took himself there upon learning that the officers were after him.He was then airlifted to Nakuru Central Police Station where he faced virtual charges today at the Nakuru Law Courts.
