• On Thursday, police gave him a six-hour ultimatum to surrender to any police station.
• Barasa said he was also attacked the same day and reported the matter to the police.
Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa says he wants to know what killed the man he is alleged to have shot on Tuesday at a polling station.
Barasa allegedly killed Brian Olunga an aide to his opponent by shooting him on the forehead ending his life on the spot.
After the incident, Barasa is said to have run into Uganda, something that made the police demand that he surrenders himself to the police.
Speaking to the media, the legislator said he is cooperating with the police as they investigate the matter.
“I went to Nairobi to get an anticipatory bail pending arrest but when I saw on TV the regional police commander asking me to surrender, I drove to this place and I’m ready to cooperate with the police so that I also know what killed that young man,” Barasa said.
The MP alleged that on Sunday, one of his bodyguards was attacked and badly injured and is currently in the hospital recuperating.
Barasa said he was also attacked the same day and reported the matter to the police.
“There were other people with guns as well including my competitor, the police officer who was manning the polling stations. We will also be making an application that all firearms that were there be subjected to forensic investigations,” he said.
The legislator presented himself at Bungoma police station and was placed under arrest as investigations into a murder case go on.
On Thursday, police gave him a six-hour ultimatum to surrender to any police station.
DCI George Kinoti said they want Barasa to shed light on the death of Brian Olunga, his rival's aide.
He is alleged to have shot him on the forehead killing him on the spot on August 8, at Chebukwabi in Kimilili, Bungoma county.
