Ruto Allies Acquitted As DPP Fails To Present Evidence

Three parliamentarians linked to Deputy President William Ruto have had their charges withdrawn by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The lawmakers had been charged with inciting violence during the March by-election in Kabuchai.

Due to a lack of evidence, Nandi Senator Samson Cherangei, Nandi MP Wilson Kogo, and Belgut’s Nelson Koech were acquitted.

The case against Kimilili MP Didmas Barasa, on the other hand, was not dismissed.

The four were brought before Bungoma magistrate Stephen Mugute for questioning. The prosecution asserted that it had proof against Barasa.

Barasa is scheduled to appear in court on September 25.
