Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi has been freed on a Ksh. 500,000 cash bail, a bond of Ksh.1 or a surety of the same amount.
The MP has been forbidden from holding any political rallies or making any public statements or proclamations.
Further, he will be required to report to any police station to help in the conclusion of investigations into the case.
During the Friday afternoon ruling, High Court Judge Joel Ngugi said the fact that the MP is influential did not warrant his incarceration for an additional 7 days.He also noted the allegations of assaulting a police officer should have been proved by the injured officers and not by locals or politicians.
Judge Ngugi also said that the ruling to detain the MP was unlawful because the state failed to prove the MP is capable of interfering with witnesses.
