Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi was on Friday, January 22 issued with a fresh court summon.
The summon was issued after he failed to appear in court for the hearing of his hate speech and offensive conduct case.
Senior Assistant Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Daniel Karuri had earlier told the court to issue a warrant of arrest on top of the summon.
However, Senior Resident Magistrate Benjamin Limo declined to grant the request after Sudi’s lawyer claimed the politician was unwell.
He, however, asked the politician to honour the fresh summons and provide a medical report to account for the court day he missed.
“Instead, summons are hereby issued to the accused to attend court and avail medical documents in support of his disposition on the day he was to attend court,” Limo said.
The Kapseret MP was in November 2020 arrested for alleged offensive remarks he made against the person of President Uhuru Kenyatta and former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
Before his arrest, the outspoken controversial legislator that insisted he had insulted no one and would not apologise.
