BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,3RD FEB,2022-The East Africa Legislative Assembly(EALA) Member of Parliament Florence Jematia is set to spend one more night in police custody.
This as Kabarnet Law Courts Resident Magistrate Nerolyne Idagwa will on Friday make a ruling on whether she will be held for 5 more days as requested by the prosecution to complete investigations or not.
Her lawyers, led by Manaseh Tunen, however requested the court to allow her to be taken for treatment at a private hospital in Kabarnet town since she is suffering from ulcers.
Jematia was arrested and grilled at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters in Nairobi on Wednesday for allegedly threatening to arm Baringo residents to fend off bandits.
Citing lack of insecurity in the area, the MP was caught on video on January 30 in Lamaiwe threatening to start a funds drive to aid the purchase of guns.
