Two police officers were among seven people arrested in a siege at the home of Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi.

The officers attached to the presidential escort unit are said to have engaged their colleagues in a fight before they were detained. Their guns and ammunition were seized in the operation.

Police said one man was shot and injured. A police officer too was injured in the incident after he was cut by a machete.

The arrested officers are likely to be charged on Monday in court.

Several people were injured in the siege as Sudi escaped while being aided by a senior officer attached to the president’s escort unit.

Those arrested too are expected in court Monday to face various charges, police aware of the plans said.
