Earlier on this week, Kimilili Constituency Member of parliament Didmus Baraza is said to have been on the run after allegedly shooting and Killing his rivals aide.
While the outspoken MP was given 24 hours by Kakamega Police Force to surrender, the Indipendent Electoral Board Commision Chairman Wafula Chebukati has opened up on the case stating that the Commision has no power to halt the vote counting process.
Moreover, He also added that the Presiding Officer would announce the winner of the Kimilili parliamentary seat after the vote counting process is completed.And with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions looking into the matter, the elephant in the room is what will Happen when Baraza Emerges as the Winner in the Kimilili Member of Parliament race.
While we might tag Didmus as innocent until proven guilty, what do you think the courts should do if the prolific leader is found guilty and if he wins the MP seat? Leave a comment, let's keep the conversation going.
