Three arrested for heckling Ruto in Bomet freed on Sh100,000 bond

Three suspects who were arrested and charged in court with promoting war-like activities, causing terror and throwing stones at members of the public during a public address by President William Ruto in Bomet have been released.

This comes as several political activists and county government employees went underground to avoid arrest after learning that police were after them for alleged involvement in the heckling during the President’s tour last Saturday.

Michael Ngeno alias Cheboror, Donex Kiplangat Biegon alias Generali or Jeshi and Paul Kiprono Bett were arraigned before Bomet Chief Magistrate M.O. Rabera where they denied the charges against them.

Mr Rabera released them on a Sh100,000 bond with a surety in like sum on the application of their lawyers and fixed their pre-trial date for April 9.

The three were released on Friday after spending two days at Bomet GK remand prison.

Bomet Governor Hillary Barchok and his Kericho counterpart Erick Mutai had a rough time during President Ruto’s tour last week when they were repeatedly heckled by the crowd to the surprise of dignitaries in the entourage.

Those wanted include former MCAs, Bomet county government employees and political activists.

“It is true that some of those involved in planning, financing and executing the chaos at the presidential function are on the run. They have gone into hiding, but they can rest assured that however long it takes, they will be arrested and prosecuted,” a senior police officer involved in the investigation told the Nation on Friday.

“Those who have gone into hiding should know that the law will catch up with them. We will deal with them and ensure that this kind of chaos is not repeated in the future,” said Dr Ahmed Omar, the Bomet County Commissioner, at a press conference on Monday.

Speaking during a tour of Kericho, Nandi and Trans Nzoia, Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki said the growing political intolerance was unacceptable.

“The security team is tasked to reign in on incidents of disorderly conduct in political meetings, conclude investigations and apprehend the organizers, financiers, and perpetrators of hooliganism in the County, regardless of their political or social standing” Prof Kindiki stated.
