Bomet residents have taken to the streets to protest the arrest of their Senator Christopher Lagat, who was picked from his home this morning by detectives. The demonstrators are condemning the Jubilee government for being dictatorial and becoming a police state.
This comes barely a few hours after a night of heated drama that saw police also camp at the home of his Kakamega counterpart Cleophas Malala.
Langat surrendered to the police after initially declining to leave his house. He was accompanied by his lawyers, among them Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President Nelson Havi as he was taken into custody.
