KTN Prime | Wednesday 8 Mar 2017 9:16 pm

Nanyuki principal magistrate Waititu Gichimu has released Laikipia North M.P. Mathew Lempurkel on a two hundred thousand shillings cash bail after the prosecution failed to give compelling reasons to continue detaining him in police custody.  Lempurkel was arrested yesterday in Nairobi, a day after a rancher was killed in Laikipia.  The legislator has denied claims of inciting locals to invade ranches and is instead accusing the jubilee administration of taking advantage of the lawlessness in Laikipia to target their opponents ahead of the august 8th general elections.
