The Kakamega senator was arrested on Monday afternoon at his Kitengela home and taken to the DCI headquarters in Kiambu.

Langat surrendered and was arrested at his Nyayo Estate home in Nairobi before being whisked away alongside his lawyer Nelson Havi.

Senators who debated the arrests claimed that Lelegwe was arrested while on his way to the House and taken to Samburu for questioning.

Police officers had for the better part of Sunday night and Monday morning camped outside the homes of Langat and Malala.
