The former Senator found himself on the wrong side of the law when he convened a meeting contrary to guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health.
His fans turned up in numbers to cheer him as he left the station shortly after arriving and recording a statement.
Khalwale blamed his recent misfortunes to his political enemies trying to score political points before he was released on Ksh 200,000 bond.
“The police must never be used to score political points. Today I was arrested & charged on the false allegations that I held a public meeting & incited the public against CS Wamalwa & Gov Oparanya at Kakamega Airstrip! Thankfully the court released me on a 200,000/- cash bail.”
According to his lawyer Victor Vihega, Dr. Boni Khalwale’s charges had been dropped but the court could not stop the proceeding as the police officer required to sign an affidavit failed to do so.
At the moment, the file of the former Senator has been kept at the court pending hearing and explanation as to why the charges should be dropped.
“I thank the ODPP for terminating those trumped-up charges against me of my allegedly inciting the public and distributing food to them. May this gesture by the DPP prompt Gov Oparanya & CS Wamalwa into rolling out the food distribution program for Kakamega County.”
