The hunt for Kapsaret MP Oscar Sudi has come to an end after he surrendered himself at Langas Police Station in Eldoret on Sunday morning.
“As a law abiding citizen I have presented myself at Langas Police Station early this morning even before the officers arrive.” Sudi wrote on Facebook.
The development comes after a number police officers had camped at his home in a bid to arrest him over hate speech and incitement charges.
” It was unnecessary to be treated with a lot of drama by sending contingent of police officers to my home. I was away the time police arrived at my place. Thank you all for standing with me.” he added.
The vocal lawmaker was accompanied by politicians allied to the DP’s Tangatanga outfit including MPs Didmus Barasa, Caleb Kostany, Cornelius Serem, Governor Stephen Sang and Uasin Gishu Woman Representative Gladys Shollei.
Senior will record a statement when senior officers arrive after which the next course of action will be decided.
Sudi has been on the run since Friday when the police began pursuing him after he addressed a public rally in Eldoret town.
About 100 police officers camped at his home near Kapsaret trading centre along Kisumu highway in Eldoret. The officers then disconnected power and gained entry but did not find the MP who was active on social media at the time.
“Must they deploy more than 100 police officers to arrest me? What crime have I done to these people? I wish they used the same energy to arrest the Covid-19 millionares”, Sudi said in a tweet.
His colleagues led by Uasin Gishu woman representative Gladys Shollei were present during the confrontation at Sudi’s home where three presidential security men were also arrested.
Hon. Shollei, a lawyer, also protested the move to hunt Sudi at night while the police was with him in Eldoret during the day and did not arrest him.
“It’s the same police officers who licensed the meeting he held in Eldoret and we are wondering why they have turned up at night at his home causing unnecessary tensions in this area,” said Shollei.
Sudi is wanted over the comments he made on President Uhuru Kenyatta and his mother Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
