Seven more days in the cell for Sudi

Embattled Kapseret PM Oscar Sudi will spend seven more days in the cells, according to a Wednesday afternoon ruling by Nakuru Chief Magistrate Josephat Kalu.

Sudi, who is facing at least six charge counts among them making offensive comments, attacking a police officer and owning a firearm illegally, will be detained at the Nakuru Central Police Station to allow detectives more time to complete investigations.

Sudi has been in detention for the last three days after his arrest at the tail end of the weekend. He caught the nation’s attention following his remarks that appeared to target the head of state as well as Kenya’s founding First Lady, Mama Ngina Kenyatta.

After a dramatic chase with the police that lasted for two days, Sudi presented himself at Langas Police Station. The police airlifted him to Nakuru Central Police Station.
