Narok Senator Stephen Ole Ntutu and 4 MPs have been released on a personal bond terms of 500,000 each as they await charges for the violence that has taken place in the county.

The five leaders from Narok County were charged for their role in demonstration in Narok Monday which led to the death of two people and injuries to many others.

Earlier, Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko had urged the court to release them on bond saying he had received information that chaos had erupted in Narok on Thursday morning as residents protested the arrest of the politicians.
During the protests, one person was injured while businesses remained closed as angry youths barricaded roads leading to Narok Town.
The four though argued for their release and were ordered to deposit the money, as well as report to the Muthaiga Police Station every Monday until the case is over.
Ntutu together with MPs Moitalel ole Kenda, Jonah Ng’eno, Kolei Olememei and Patrick Ntutu were detained by the CID Wednesday evening for their part in the illegal demonstrations over apparent misappropriation of funds by the Narok County Governor.

The MPs and Ntutu had been asked by Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery to head to the CID and record statements over the demonstrations that had been declared illegal by his office and the police.

They did so Wednesday and recorded statements at the Muthaiga Police Station and despite openly availing themselves, were detained for further investigations.Tension has gripped Narok town after the area leaders defied the government’s ban on rallies and demonstrations and staged a demo in the town.
Senator Ntutu led other legislators and residents from the County in storming the governor’s office over allegations of misappropriation of funds collected from the Maasai Mara Game Reserve by the county government.
Ntutu said that the demonstrations would go on as they are not a threat to the security but they rather want to present a petition to the governor Kuntai ole Tunai.
Narok governor Kuntai ole Tunai has since dismissed the claims as baseless and political and aimed at slowing down the development that he has started in the area.
Nkaissery had banned rallies and demonstrations in the region, saying that they could result in violent confrontations and loss of lives.
There is currently a heavy presence of security personnel in and around the town.
The five are required to maintain peace as they await the mention of their case on February 13.
