I did not say we’ll punish Ruto critics, Cherargei says after being released


Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei has said he was misquoted and that he did not utter inciting remarks as was reported.
Addressing the media after being released on a personal bond following questioning by Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) officers in Kisumu, the senator termed his arrest political and that he did not threaten anyone.
The senator maintained that he only said they will ‘sort out’ those opposed to Deputy President William Ruto and not punish them as is being said.
“This all politics, because as far I as I am aware, ‘sorting out’ cannot be punishing or beating someone, it has got very many meanings,” he said.
Cherargei was driven to Kisumu Central Police Station after being arrested by police in Eldoret over alleged inciting remarks.
Kisumu County Criminal Investigations Officer Onesmus Arap Towett confirmed the senator was set free and is expected to appear at the Eldoret DCI offices on Thursday.
