Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi finally surrenders to police
The two-day dramatic police search for controversial Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has ended as he presented himself to Langas Police Station in Uasin Gishu County on Sunday.
Police had been seeking to arrest the MP over hate speech and incitement claims.
Mr Sudi arrived at the station a few minutes to 8am Sunday with his lawyer Gladys Shollei, who is also the Uasin Gishu woman representative.
He was also accompanied by MPs Caleb Kositany (Soy), Cornelius Serem (Aldai) and Didmus Barasa (Kimilili), Nandi Governor Stephen Sang, Uasin Gishu Speaker Isaac Terer and other leaders.
Mr Sudi and a team of his lawyers were later flown to the Dog Section Unit in Nakuru in a police air wing helicopter. Following their arrival at around 11 am, he was transferred to Nakuru Central Police Station for further interrogation.
The MP was then booked at the station and locked up in the cells as heavily armed police officers stood guard and blocked access by members of the public.
Ms Sholei, who briefed the media said they were yet to know the charges the MP would face.
"Mr Sudi, like any other law abiding citizen, presented himself to police. We expect that he will be presented before court within the 24 hours, as required by the Constitution," she said.
"We are, however, yet to receive any communication on what police intend to charge him with.
