The drama was witnessed on Friday night when a group of police officers who attempted to access the home of Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, were blocked by rowdy residents.

The resident who armed themselves with bows, clubs, machetes, and arrows were ready to engage security officers outside Sudi’s home.

Led by Uasin Gishu police boss Johnstone Ipara, the officers arrived at Sudi’s home at around 8:30 pm and camped outside his home until 7:10 am on Saturday.

The rowdy youths barricaded the road leading to the MP’s home of the Kapsabet road with logs, tractors, and boulders at different points. However, the police officers managed to clear the road at around 3:30 am.

The locals said they would not allow the MP to be arrested at night. They argued that Sudi ought to have been arrested during the day when he a function in Eldoret town during the day.

“In our culture, police cannot come to arrest someone at night and when they come, we consider them as thieves. That is why we had to protect our MP,” one of the residents told a local daily.

Leaders led by Uasin Gishu Woman Rep Gladys Shollei condemned the action by the police trying to force their way into Sudi’s home at night without giving a proper reason.

Shollei, who is also Sudi’s lawyer said the police managed to conduct a night search at Sudi’s house but failed to find the MP.

Until now the whereabouts of the MP remains unknown.

According to Shollei, it was prudent for the officers to summon Sudi instead of going to his place at night and creating ‘tensions’.
