Police in Bungoma County have arrested four lawmakers in Kabuchai Constituency where a hotly-contested by-election is underway.

Among those who were arrested on Thursday morning, March 4, are Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa, Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei, Chesumi MP Nelson Kogo and Belgut MP Nelson Koech.

The Kimilili MP told K24 Digital that police are harassing, claiming that they were planning to instigate violence during the Kabuchai by-election.

Elsewhere in the same ward, Sirisia MP John Waluke and Jubilee nominated senator Millicent Omanga were thrown out of a polling station.

The two politicians were kicked out of the Busakala polling centre where the Kabuchai by-election is underway.
