Kapsaret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi has spoken on his whereabouts as he presented himself to police this morning.
A contingent of police officers camped at the lawmaker’s home from Friday night with intentions of arresting him, but the controversial MP was nowhere to be seen.
After four hours, police finally managed to break into the home of the Kapseret MP on Saturday morning but failed to arrest him.
The heavily armed police eventually broke into the residence in the wee hours of Saturday morning, but could not find the MP.
On Friday night, irate residents blocked the road leading to Sudi’s home with logs, stones and tractors to stop police from accessing the controversial lawmaker’s compound.
A contingent of police officers including the dreaded GSU who raided Sudi’s house had to wait at the gate for several hours before shattering the gate’s lock at 3am to gain access into the residence.
Sudi, however, managed to escape the dragnet leaving behind hundreds of police officers who ransacked the house for hours.
Though senior police officers involved in the operation have not revealed the exact reason he was being sought, it is believed his anti-First Family utterances last week put him in police radar.
While presenting himself at Langas Police Station in Eldoret this morning, Sudi revealed that he was away at the time the police arrived at his residence.
He however noted that it was unnecessary to be treated with a lot of drama by sending contingent of police officers to his home.
He said he had presented himself to police as a law abiding citizen. The lawmaker arrived at the police station even before the officers had even woken up.
“As a law abiding citizen I have presented myself at Langas Police Station early this morning even before the officers arrive. 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 posted on social media.
