Court allows police to detain MP Oscar Sudi for seven days

Kapsaret Member of Parliament(MP) Oscar Sudi will remain in detention for seven days pending completion of investigation by detectives.

The decision was approved on Wednesday when he appeared before Nakuru Law courts to answer to several charges among them being hate speech.

Initially, the defense team pleaded with the court to have the Kapsaret MP stay in custody for 14-days pending determination of their investigation.

Led by Uain Gishu Women Rep. Gladys Boss Sholei, the defense team confirmed the MP was very much okay pending bail hearing of the case.

His utterances caused a huge political divide as women condemned his attack on the first lady of the country Mama Ngina Kenyatta.

In his speech he also mentioned the President following the alleged rift between him and his deputy William Ruto ahead of the 2022 elections.

The sentiments saw the Deputy President address the matter on social media calling on leaders to be mindful of their language.

“Leaders should exercise restraint and avoid insults and bad language against other kenyans. Unsavoury words against mothers and Head of State is a NO, NO. No amount of anger justifies use of offensive insulting language.There exists decent ways to communicate however one feels.” Said DP William Ruto

Churches joined in the condemnation saying such utterances have usually led to blood shed every election nearing period in the country.
