Kimilili Member of Parliament Didmus Barasa says he was not the only one with a gun on the day Brian Olunga was killed.

Barasa who had been given six-hours by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to surrender himself, said he had gone to seek anticipatory bail.

“I went to Nairobi to make an application to the High Court so that the court can give me anticipatory bail pending arrest, but when I saw on TV yesterday our regional police commander telling me to surrender, I drove all the way to this place and I am ready to cooperate with the police so that I can also know what killed that young man,” said Barasa.

He said he was not the only one with a gun on the said day.

“Wherever we were on that voting day there were other people with guns as well including my competitor, the police officer who was manning that particular polling station,” said Barasa.

“So we will also be making applications so that all those firearms that were there be subjected to forensic investigations,” he added.

The Kimilili Mp-elect also said that his bodyguard was attacked on Sunday evening and was in a coma for three days.

He claimed he had survived an assassination attempt later that Sunday night, a matter the police were aware of.

“I am here to cooperate with the police, go through all the process to ensure justice is served,” Barasa said.
