Tiaty Member of Parliament William Kamket has been arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over the ongoing clashes in Laikipia county.

According to reports, Kamket was placed behind bars on Wednesday September 8, 2021.

His arrest comes after eight people, including three police officers, lost their lives in a span of just six days from bandit attacks in the area.

Kamket was nabbed when the officers conducted a raid at his home in Tiaty, Baringo County.

He was taken to DCI offices in Nakuru where he is expected to be grilled over the ongoing skirmishes that have left hundreds of Kenyans displaced.

Lempurkel was picked up on Wednesday morning while at his home in Rongai, Kajiado County.
