The Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji has said that Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa will spend the weekend at Bungoma police station.
In a statement, the office of the DPP said they had postponed charges against him, to allow sleuths to conclude investigations.
Didmus will be charged in court on Monday, August 15.
"Didmus Barasa, MP Kimilili, will spend the weekend at the Bungoma Police Station as ODPP deferred charges against him, to allow the Homicide detectives complete investigations," Haji said.
On Thursday, police gave him a six-hour ultimatum to surrender to any police station.
DCI George Kinoti said they wanted 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.
“A specialized team of sleuths based from the elite Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau and the Homicide department has been dispatched to augment the teams on the ground for his manhunt,” Kinoti said.
“Serious action will be taken against any person/s found to be harbouring the murder suspect.”
On Wednesday, the DPP issued a warrant of arrest against Barasa.
Olunga was a bodyguard to Brian Khaemba, who was Barasa's opponent in the Kimilili parliamentary race.
