Malala spent Monday night at the Mumias Police Station. His colleagues in the Senate questioned why he was not issued with a police bond despite facing such flimsy charges. Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr said Senators; Christopher Langat (Bomet) and Steve Lelegwe (Samburu), who were also dramatically arrested on Monday, were released on bail despite facing bigger charges.

“Sen Malala spent the night in the cold. No one to book him. No cash bail. Sen Lelegwe & Langat were released in record time even though they are alleged to have committed more serious offenses,” Mutula tweeted.
Earlier on, riots erupted at the Mumias Police Station as the youth demanded for the release of the Senator. Youth lit bonfires and engaged police in a running battle. Police were forced to use teargas to disperse Malala’s supporters.
