Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa Surfaces Online Amid Order to Surrender

With a couple of hours remaining for the order issued to the Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa to surrender to the police within twenty four hours or face consequences that will follow should a manhunt for him be launched, the outspoken legislator has surfaced online.

Didmus Barasa who is facing accusations of allegedly shooting and killing his opponent's bodyguard under unclear circumstances at Chebukwabi primary school in his Kimilili constituency yesterday on August 9th has surfaced with a popular phrase on the internet.

Taking to Facebook a few minutes to 6pm today on August 10th, a seemingly elated Didmus Barasa shared a photo capturing him, Deputy President William Ruto and Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka standing at unknown location with the DP buttoning up his shirt.

His caption to the photo was that "masaa ndio machache..." and I guess you can note below that they were all in smiles.

Anyone's guess would be that he had shared the photo in reaction with the current votes tallying that seem to have impressed him since they were all aspirants in various elective seats.

Since yesterday evening, the legislator hasn't been spotted in public and he's accused to have shot and killed one Brian Olunga, a bodyguard to DAP-Kenya's Bryan Khaemba who was seeking to unseat him in Kimilili constituency.

Speaking to the media regarding the unfortunate incident earlier today, the Bungoma Police Commander Francis Kooli wondered why the MP had decided to disappear and refused to report to the police even after being requested.

"We've not arrested the honourable (Didmus Barasa) but he remains to be a suspect in this. Why did he disappear? Why isn't he surrendering to the police as requested?

We've given him twenty four hours to surrender or else we launch a manhunt for him and he knows the consequences of such an action," the police commander said.
