It is not yet clear where he will be taken to in Nairobi where he is expected to spend a night in police cells before he is arraigned tomorrow in court to face charges for the remarks he made during DP Ruto's political rally in Eldoret yesterday.
The senator was arrested by DCI detectives attached to the National Cohesion and Integration Commission at Rupa in a hotel located within Eldoret this morning.
The Director of Public Prosecutions, Noordin Haji Saturday evening ordered investigations into Linturi's remarks.
Linturi in the video of his speech heard saying "Sisi tunataka kuwa kwa serikali inayokuja lakini nawaambia watu wa Uasin Gishu msicheze na Kenya na kile nawaomba ni kwamba madoadoa yale mliyonayo hapa muweze kuondoa. Hatuwezi kuwa tukisimama na William Ruto kule Mt Kenya na mko na wengine hapa hawasikii na hawawezi ungana naye...".
