Kapsaret MP Oscar Sudi has presented himself at Langas Police Station in Eldoret.
This comes a day after police camped at his home on Friday evening in bid to arrest him over alleged hate speech and incitement.The police however failed to arrest him since they could not locate him.He is expected to be arraigned tomorrow over hate speech.
Sudi was accompanied by MPs Didmus Barasa, Caleb Kostany, Cornelius Serem, Governor Stephen Sang and Uasin Gishu Woman Representative Gladys Shollei at Langas Police Station early this morning even before the officers arrived.
This came soon after Sudi addressed a public meeting in Eldoret.
About 100 police officers camped at the MP’s home near Kapsaret trading centre along Kisumu highway in Eldoret but did not enter the compound.
The police fired tear gas as hundreds of protesting villagers arrived at the home and used logs and rocks to block all roads in a bid to stop the officers from arresting the legislator.
At one point, the officers disconnected power to the home and gained entry but did not access the MP.
He was said to have been with friends and kept on communicating with colleagues through social media. A security officer was injured during the fracas at the home.
Sudi is wanted over utterances against President Uhuru Kenyatta and his mother Mama Ngina Kenyatta. The MP posted on social media video clips in which he lectured the President and the former First Lady with remarks which were widely condemned as abusive and inciting.
Sudi refused to withdraw the remarks and insisted that he had not abused anyone.
“They must tell me what I have done before I apologise,” he said, describing those condemning his remarks as “conmen and looters”.
