Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi will remain behind bars for 7 more days.
The legislator surrendered to the police at Langas Police Station on Sunday ending a 48 hour standoff with the police.
On Monday he was charged with hate speech, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, possession of a firearm and offensive conduct.
In a miscellaneous application filed before Nakuru Chief Magistrate Joseph at Kalo, the prosecution sought to have the lawmaker held for 14 days pending a police investigation.
During a police search at the MP’s Eldoret home, a ceska pistol and a magazine with 11 bullets were found inside the lawmaker’s vehicle.
State counsel Daniel Karuri urged the court to deny Sudi bail saying he is a flight risk and is likely to interfere with witnesses.
But the defense team, led by Kipkoech Ngetich, opposed the application arguing it infringed on the MP’s right of release on bond.
