The Kiambu legislator said: ”Wembe ni ule ule wa kunyoa Raila tena, ya kutairi na ya kwenja muka huyo (The razor blade is the same to shave Raila again, to circumcise and shave his wife’s pubic hair).”
He is however being released on a 300,000 cash bail and 1 million as a surety that he will handle himself in good conduct pending the trial.
