Court bars police from arresting Mbita MP

By KBC Reporters

Police have been barred from arresting Mbita legislator Millie Odhiambo over her derogatory remarks on the presidency. Millie will be off the police hook until investigations on her conduct are complete.

The ODM MP will however be required to present herself to Parliament Police station this Thursday for further investigations.

The purpose of Millie Odhiambo’s appearance at parliament’s police station is to enable police complete investigations into her remarks on the presidency made during protests by opposition MPs over amendments to the election law.

State counsel Moses Omirera told the court that investigations are ongoing adding that once they are done they will forward the file to the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko for directions.

Millie had moved to court seeking anticipatory bail over her imminent arrest following her remarks in the precincts of Parliament in December 2016.

Director of Public Prosecution, the Interior Cabinet secretary, the Inspector-General of Police and the Attorney-General have been named as respondents in the case.

A businessman has already moved to the high court seeking the arrest of Millie claiming her remarks bordered on belittling the Presidency which is a symbol of national unity in the country.
