Deputy President William Ruto’s ally and Kapseret MP, Oscar Sudi, is now a free man after a Nakuru court cleared him of any wrongdoing in the case where he is accused of insulting President Uhuru Kenyatta’s mother, Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
The court ruled that the MP has no case to answer, leading to an end to the tussle that had taken months in the corridors of Justice.
Sudi was dramatically arrested by several security officers at his Kapseret home last year after he insulted Uhuru’s mother with unprinted adjectives.
Speaking after being acquitted, the MP was full of gratitude to the Judiciary for exercising independence and granting him justice.
“What I want to say is that the good thing with Kenya’s Judiciary nowadays is that we have independence and justice,” he said.
According to the MP, his remarks were misconstrued to be a criminal offence yet he was addressing a societal issue.
“When I was making the statement that was deemed as abuse, I talked about my mother.
“But because my mother is poor they saw it wise to arrest me. But the court has given me justice,” he said.
President Uhuru Kenyatta is reportedly angry with the decision of the court but has no choice and will abide by it.
