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