Belgut MP Nelson Koech and former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama were on Wednesday released fro police custody.

The two Deputy President William Ruto allies were arrested on Tuesday during the Msambweni constituency by-election.

Kwa supporters wetu, siasa sio chuki tupendane sisi ni watu wa Msambweni na Kwale kwa Jumla na pia tuwashukuru wale ambao tulifanya siasa. Watu waliteta lakini tuwache hayo mambo tusonge mbele kujenga nchi yetu,” he stated.
