Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has made a triumphant entry in Eldoret town despite a slur against President Uhuru Kenyatta and his family hanging on his neck.

In a convoy led by hundreds of motorcycle riders, chanting songs in solidarity with the besieged MP, Sudi addressed the public on the streets of Eldoret town, disrupting traffic.
In the morning the atmosphere was tense as residents feared police would disrupt the rally. However, reports indicated he had been given one hour to end the meeting and police in full combat gear patrolled the streets.

"We will not be cowed by intimidation but we shall continue with calls for a just society where all Kenyans are treated equally. The NCIC should not be selective in summoning those perceived as hate mongers," he said while accompanied by a host of MCAs.

Last night he claimed several policemen had been sent to his home.

"Don't abuse police by sending hundreds of them to fetch me. Just a phone call to your office is enough," he said before ending the meeting.

Sudi has stood his ground saying he will not apologise for his sentiments that have been labeled inflammatory, against the Kenyatta family.

While speaking to the media previously, the vocal MP said his remarks were the truth and not aimed at inciting anyone.

“I was very surprised to see so many women agitated that I referred to women’s breasts, it is even in the bible, that was not an insult, I will apologise once people show me where I went wrong,” he stated.

The controversial legislator also dismissed statements that he was speaking on behalf of the Deputy President William Ruto, adding that he speaks out his mind.

"I have my own opinions about anything in the country. Those saying I speak for DP Ruto should know that I have my own understanding and I don't need to talk on anyone's behalf," he added. Sudi also turned his guns on the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga, and the Jubilee Party Vice chair David Murathe for having not been mentioned despite their utterances against DP Ruto.

"Why are we not seeing the police chasing Murathe and Raila Odinga, we need to be fair in this country. Why didn't Raila Odinga speak when Gladys Wanga and Babu Owino insulted the President?" posed Sudi.
