Narok senator and three MPs ordered to record statement

Narok county senator Stephen Ole Ntutu and MPs Patrick Ntutu, Korei ole Lemein and Jonah Ngeno have been ordered to record statements with CID on alleged charges of incitement.
The leaders have been accused of having uttered sentiments that bordered on incitement during two public rallies held in Narok town and at Olololunga trading centre on two different days last month.
 Senator Ntutu’s group has of late openly condemned the Narok governor Samuel ole Tunai style of leadership and even went ahead to accuse him of mismanagement of huge amount of funds earmarked for various development activities in the county.
During the two well-attended rallies-cum-street demonstrations,  the leaders had organised to condemn the governor they threatened to mobilise their supporters and forcibly evict the governor from office if he failed to  voluntarily resign. 
It took intervention of President Uhuru Kenyatta who summoned the Narok leaders particularly those opposed to the governor led by Senator Ntutu to State House from where the president promised to investigate in 21 days the allegations they had raised against the governor.
However, before the time frame set by the president expired the Ntutu-led group organised a huge rally at Olololunga trading centre from where this time they  threatened to organise the mother of all demonstrations against the governor.
Conspicuously missing in the list of the summoned to the county CID office to record statement is Narok North MP Moitalel ole Kenta although he has been vocal during the two meetings alongside others.
Their lawyer Martin ole Kamwaro requested the detectives to give his clients time to prepare their defence statements and promised to report back on January 8.
