Narok Senator, MPs released on 0.5M bond

29 January 2015, 14:35 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Narok Senator Stephen Ole Ntutu and 4 MPs have been released on a KES 500,000 bond each as they await charges for the violence that has taken place in the county.

The five officials, all from Narok were charged for their role in demonstration in Narok Monday which led to the death of two people and injuries to many others.

The Director of Public Prosecutions DPP had insisted that the 5 not be released until investigations are complete due to their bad and dangerous behaviour.

The DPP also argued that the four would increase tensions in the region if they are released.

The four though argued for their release and were ordered to deposit the money, as well as report to the Muthaiga Police Station every Monday until the case is over.

Ntutu together with MPs Moitalel ole Kenda, Jonah Ng'eno, Kolei Olememei and Patrick Ntutu were detained by the CID Wednesday evening for their part in the illegal demonstrations over apparent misappropriation of funds by the Narok County Governor.

2 people were confirmed dead in the demonstrations that eventually turned violent.

The MPs and Ntutu had been asked by Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery to head to the CID and record statements over the demonstrations that had been declared illegal by his office and the police.

They did so Wednesday and recorded statements at the Muthaiga Police Station and despite openly availing themselves, were detained for further investigations.

Tension has gripped Narok town after the area leaders defied the government’s ban on rallies and demonstrations and staged a demo in the town.

Senator Ntutu lead other legislators and residents from the County in storming the governor’s office over allegations of misappropriation of funds collected from the Maasai Mara Game Reserve by the county government.  

Ntutu said that the demonstrations would go on as they are not a threat to the security but they rather want to present a petition to the governor Kuntai ole Tunai.

Narok governor Kuntai ole Tunai has since dismissed the claims as baseless and political and aimed at slowing down the development that he has started in the area.

Nkaissery had banned rallies and demonstrations in the region, saying that they could result in violent confrontations and loss of lives.

There is currently a heavy presence of security personnel in and around the town.
