BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,16TH SEPT 2020-Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi will now remain in police custody for 7 more days pending completion of investigations into allegations against him.

Nakuru Law Courts Chief Magistrate Josephat Kalo on Wednesday ruled out an application by the prosecution to detain Sudi for 14 days.

Sudi is charged with hate speech, offensive conduct, resisting arrest, being in unlawful possession of a firearm and assault of a police officer.

A group of political leaders allied to him, led by Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, attended the court session in solidarity with him.

The Kapseret MP was arrested for alleged offensive remarks he made against the person of President Uhuru Kenyatta and former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta.

Before his arrest, the outspoken controversial legislator that insisted he had insulted no one and would not apologise.

He was previously arraigned at the Nakuru Law Courts on Monday where he was detained at the Nakuru Police Station for two days.
