Ruaraka MP TJ Kajwang has been released on a Sh 50,000 cash bail after spending the night in police custody.

The MP’s lawyers had filed an application to court demanding the MP be arraigned after police delayed in presenting him as scheduled.

The High Court had certified the matter as urgent to be heard tomorrow but later deferred the hearing date to February 6.

Kajwang has been charged with being present and consenting to the administration of an oath to NASA leader Raila Odinga with an intent to commit a capital offence namely treason on Tuesday.

In the second count, the prosecution claimed that Kajwang took part in an unlawful assembly where he is accused of organising a public meeting at Uhuru park without notifying police.
