Gatundu Member of Parliament Moses Kuria will be arraigned in court to know his fate following a dramatic arrest.
He was arrested last Friday at Citizen Television studios after he was accused of assaulting a woman.
While a court had issued orders granting him Sh50,000 cash bail pending his appearance in court to be charged, police declined to have him freed until Saturday evening.
Politicians allied to the vocal politician took to Milimani Police Station where he was held, demanding his release.
Residents of Gatundu also took to the streets to protest the reluctance to have him released despite an existing court order.
Senior Principal Magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot directed that the lawmaker be set free until the hearing of his suit against the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on Monday at 11 am.
