Speaking after his release, the senator said he’ll give the DCI time to carry out their investigations.

“Let us give them time to meditate on the meaning of kushughulikia because the word has a lot of meaning, ” said Cherargei.

The arrest came hours after the DCI summoned the senator over the remarks made at the funeral of the late teacher Dominic Kiptoo Choge at Lelwak in O’lessos.

In a video that has since gone viral, Cherargei warned that when the time comes they would “deal with” the DP’s opponents.

“Those who are fighting the Deputy President, we (sic) are profiling you … if you fight [the] DP you’re fighting us. Don’t think he doesn’t have supporters. As his supporters if you continue fighting the DP we are marking you and profiling you. When the time comes we will deal with you. Even the DP has supporters and should be respected,” said Cherargei.
