Didmus Barasa 1

Kimilili MP-elect Didmus Barasa’s lawyer has moved to court seeking anticipatory bail pending his arrest.

He also claims that the victim was part of a hit squad and was killed by a stray bullet.

His lawyer says Barasa has been branded a murderer without due process being followed, thus prejudicing his right to fair trial.

The lawyer says the court therefore needs to grant him bail pending arrest.
