He was escorted to the Kileleshwa police station where he remained behind bars until around 5.30 pm when he was freed.

His lawyer Cliff Ombeta told The Standard that the legislator had been questioned about the death of a man only identified as Edward.

Ombeta said the police had demanded that Kamket provide information about the man who is said to have died six years ago.

“We have told them that we don’t know anything about the matter," Ombeta said on phone.

Ombeta said a team of DCI officers from Nakuru were questioning the legislator on the matter.

“I told them he had no information about the matter and that is it, “said Ombeta.

Kamket, who had earlier spoke to the Standard, confirmed that he had been freed but declined to comment on the reasons for his arrest.
