Tiaty MP William Kamket

Tiaty Member of Parliament William Kamket is expected to appear in court this morning to face incitement charges. He is currently being held at the Kaptembwo Police Station in Nakuru and will be presented in court any time now.

Kamket was arrested yesterday in Kabarnet, Baringo County, on suspicion of inciting violence in the deadly Laikipia clashes.

The prosecution will be seeking more time to allow for investigations into the charges. Former Laikipia North MP Mathew Lempurkel was also arrested yesterday at his Ongata Rongai home in Kajiado County.

Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya on Wednesday said they were looking for the ex-MP and two other politicians on suspicion of fueling banditry attacks in Laikipia County.

Lempurkel would later appear in court Wednesday afternoon.

Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and Natembeya are in Laikipia leading an ongoing security operation in the area, now in its third day. Eight people have been killed and scores displaced in the month-long violence.
