Meru Senator Mithika Linturi is in police custody over comments he made in Eldoret during Deputy President William Ruto’s rally on Saturday. 

The Senator was nabbed in an Eldoret hotel on Sunday morning following a directive by Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji to the Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai.

Mutyambai was instructed to investigate the matter and forward the findings to the DPP’s office by January 14.

“…Watu wa Uasin Gishu musicheze na Kenya, na kile nawaomba ni kwamba madoa doa yale mulionayo hapa muweze kuondoa…’ Linturi told the Eldoret crowd on Saturday, remarks which caused uproar for what was construed as advocating for tribal segregation.

In his letter to the police boss on Saturday, DPP Haji stated: “My attention has been drawn to a video clip circulating on social media platforms portraying Mithika Linturi allegedly addressing a crowd and stating that … which utterances could incite feelings of contempt, hatred, hostility, violence or discrimination.”

“I hereby direct that you immediately institute comprehensive investigations into the said allegations and submit the resultant investigation file on or before 14 January 2021,” added Haji.

Police have transferred him to Nakuru where he is expected to record a statement.

“I was humiliated and body shamed by the likes of Aisha Jumwa but Ruto never uttered a word. For this reason I can never go back to UDA even if I was given a direct ticket,” she added.
