DPP Wants Sudi Detained For 14 More Days, Charged With Five Counts

Published

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has been charged with five counts, including being in unlawful possession of firearms and assaulting a police officer.

Appearing before Nakuru Principal Magistrate Josphat Kalo, Sudi denied all the charges.

The Kapseret MP was charged with hate speech, offensive conduct, assaulting a police officer, unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition, and resisting arrest.

The prosecution requested the court to detain Sudi for 14 days, urging the court to deny the MP bail for the sake of public order.

However, Sudi’s battery of lawyers rebutted the claims, terming false allegation that the MP resisted arrest on September 11.

“Hon Sudi presented himself to the Langas police station on his own volition,” said one of the counsels.

They opposed the prayers of the prosecution to seek a further 14 days detention, arguing that such an application is unconstitutional and breaches Sudi’s fundamental human rights.
