Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives on Tuesday arrested Nandi Senator Samuel Cherargei in his Eldoret home.
Cherargei was arrested over remarks he made at a funeral of the late teacher Dominic Kiptoo in Olessos on Saturday.
Detectives had camped outside his home for hours before he finally surrendered and was arrested and driven to the DCI offices in Nandi to record a statement.
in a video shared on Facebook by Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu, the senator warns those fighting the Deputy President William Ruto of unknown consequences.
“Those who are fighting the Deputy President, we (sic) are profiling you … if you fight [the] DP you’re fighting us. Don’t think he doesn’t have supporters,” Cherargei told mourners.
He added, “as his supporters if you continue fighting the DP we are marking you and profiling you. When the time comes we will deal with you. Even the DP has supporters and should be respected.”
