Speaker detained over clashes

The suspects stayed in police cells over the weekend

 

Nakuru Senior Principal Magistrate Liz Gicheha rejected bail application by the accused, which had also been rejected by the prosecution. The Prosecution had sought orders to remand the suspects for a further 14 days to allow detailed investigations.

The suspects were arrested last week for allegedly propagating the ethnic clashes, and spent the weekend at Njoro Police Station.

Deadly operation

One man was shot dead by police last Friday night in the ongoing operation to restore calm in the region.

Regional Coordinator in Njoro Mongo Chimwaga confirmed that two chiefs from the area had also been arrested.

The prosecution argued the situation in Njoro was volatile and putting the suspects on the lose would cause more tension, and witness interference.

The deputy speaker was referred to Nakuru Level V Hospital for health checkup after he sought to be released on basis that he was ill.
