Jubilee MP speaks on being arrested over phone calls to President Uhuru

Kajiado West MP comes clean on his alleged arrest

Yesterday, the claims went viral on social media that the legislator had been arrested by the police for making the disturbing and annoying calls that had offended the President.

The lawmaker dispelled the claims, stating that he is “in constant communication with the President and if it is true he is offended by my calls, he should have told me verbally and not using the police”.

The legislator who also has a petition case pending in court blamed his political opponents for the rumours adding that he had not asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to bail him out.

“It is true I have a petition case pending in court and I cannot be so naive to ask for the president’s favours to be bailed out. It is my case, not a state case. I am taking up this matter with the police,” added Sunkuiya.

Ongata Rongai OCPD, Silas Ringera confirmed that the legislator had not been booked in for interrogation at the police station as alleged.

Ringera said that he “should have known of his arrest had he been brought here. We do not have that MP’s name in our occurrence book”.
