The August general elections haven't been trouble-free. Some of the candidates have already admitted defeat because they did their own tallying and saw where they stood.
Others are busy celebrating their victories, but Didmus Barasa, who kept his seat in the Kimilili Constituency, is on the run after a supporter of one of his opponents in the recent elections was killed.
Didmus Barasa had only six hours to turn himself in to the police after the cold-blooded murder of a man who was said to be the personal assistant of a rival.
Didmus Barasa thanked his constituents on Twitter earlier for giving him another term so he could serve them for another five years as a Member of Parliament. However, Didmus Barasa is nowhere to be seen to pick up his certificate from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Returning Officer in Kimilili.
According to a reliable report in The Star newspaper this afternoon, Didmus Barasa went to court this afternoon to try to stop his arrest. This came after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations told him to turn himself in.
Didmus Barasa went to court to ask for bail while he waits to be arrested for murder, which is what the charges against him are.
He has said that no investigations have been done, but he has already been called the person who did it.

Picture courtesy. Wanted for murder in Kimilili, and who won the seat again, is wanted for killing someone.
