Kapseret Lawmaker Oscar Sudi has been flown to Nairobi after he presented himself to the police, a day after evading arrest at his Kapseret home.

He took to social media to provide an update after he recorded a statement today morning flanked by his lawyers Governor Stephen Sang, Jane Maasai, Gladys Boss Shollei and Isaac Terer.

He is expected to record a statement with NCIC over his alleged inciteful remarks he made earlier in the week.

The under fire lawmaker who is wanted for alleged hate speech and incitement had taken himself to Langas Police Station early Sunday morning.

This development is the culmination of two days of uncertainty over his whereabouts after police laid siege to his Kapseret home on Friday night and left on Saturday morning after a fruitless search for the MP.

Moments after he presented himself, he took to social media to thank his supporters for standing with him throughout the flopped arrest ordeal.

He further said that he was not at home on Friday night when a continent of police officers went to arrest him.

“As a law abiding citizen I have presented myself at Langas Police Station early this morning even before the officers arrive. It was unnecessary to be treated with a lot of drama by sending contingent of police officers to my home. I was away the time police arrived at my place. Thank you all for standing with me.” Sudi wrote on his Facebook page.

Other Mps who accompanied him are Jubilee Party Deputy Secretary General Caleb Kositany and Kimilili Mp Didmus Barasa.
