A Nakuru Court has directed the Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai to reinstate Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi’s security detail.
Senior Resident Magistrate Isaac Orenge said that the withdrawal of security detail was an unfair administrative action in contravention of natural rules of justice.
After the ruling, the legislature lauded the courts for upholding the fair justice process for the weak, saying that it provides hope for people who are unfairly subjected to mistreatment.
The legislator had filed an application before the Nakuru Senior Resident Magistrate’s court seeking the reinstatement of his security.
Sudi claimed that his life was in danger, arguing that the move had prejudged him before he was tried in court.
His security was withdrawn after he was charged with two counts of Hate Speech and Offensive Conduct which he was later found not guilty.
His defense had argued in court that the withdrawal of his security was an affront to justice as suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
The Ruto ally is charged with uttering words that could stir up violence at an unknown place within Kenya.
