After a long day of uncertainties, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has provided an update on Kapseret Mp Oscar Sudi’s whereabouts after evading arrest on Friday night.
Taking to his social media pages, Murkomen said that Sudi is enroute to Nairobi where he and his lawyers will present themselves to the National Cohesion and Integration Commission on Monday.
“Hon. Oscar Sudi is safe. He is almost arriving Nairobi. We shall prepare him tomorrow and present before NCIC on Monday. Thank you all for your support.” Murkomen wrote on twitter.
The update is a culmination of long night of standoff between the Mp’s supporters and the police at his compound.
It is still yet not clear how Sudi escaped the police drag net after a contingent of heavily armed officers stormed his compound last night.
Unverified media reports indicate that at least a dozen people were either injured or arrested, among them his security guard and his brother in law Don Bosco Gichana.
Earlier, Murkomen had mocked the police officers who came in two lorries and a fleet of land rovers via a video he shared on his twitter handle saying: “Police leaving Hon. Sudi’s home after guarding him for the whole night. Believe it or not Oscar is still missing.”

The outspoken Kapseret Mp is wanted by the police over incitement to violence after he held a charged up meeting at the famous Silverline in Eldoret town.
Sudi is also wanted over utterances against President Uhuru Kenyatta and his mother Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
The MP on Monday and Tuesday posted on social media video clips in which he made a slur against the President and the former First Lady Mama Ngina which received countrywide condemnation as abusive and inciting remarks.
While addressing his supporters on Friday, the Kapseret legislator warned the police against being used by politicians to disrupt meetings.
“Everybody has the right to express him or herself as long as it’s according to the law, I want to tell police not to allow themselves to be used by politicians to through teargas to innocent Kenyans,” said the Kapseret legislator.
“I also want to call upon the DPP to arrest those who stole the COVID-19 funds if they are serious in the fight against corruption. How can someone steal money meant for the sick? Oscar Sudi wondered.
Sudi also said that he will not apologize to the Kenyatta family unless they tell him what his mistake was and also called upon the opposition leader Raila Odinga to apologize to the Kenyatta family for calling him all sorts of name.
