Shinyalu Member of Parliament Justus Kizito has been released on Sh100,000 bond.
Kizito, who was arraigned earlier today, was arrested by detectives attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) alongside his driver and another suspect yesterday afternoon.
On February 2, 2021 the MP and seven other individuals, are accused of vandalising property belonging to a family known as the Mudekus which is embroiled in a land dispute with Vukutsa Primary School.
According to Kakamega DCI boss James Lelia, a number of officers were injured while apprehending Kizito, who allegedly resisted arrest.
“Several police officers got injured in the confrontation as his supporters attempted to free him from the officers. We may file more charges against him for resisting arrest,” Leila said.
He is said to have destroyed property worth Sh250,000.
