Former Bomet MP Nick Salat has been charged in a Kericho law court with attempted murder.
Addressing a press conference at Police headquarters Friday police spokesman Eric Kiraithe said that the former legislator’s fire-arm and license have been impounded.
Kiraithe at the same time said that a warrant of arrest has been issued against former Saboti MP Davis Nakitare.
Kiraithe says Nakitare is being sought for allegedly promoting war like activities.
Police require Nakitare to report to Kitale police station or any other police station.
The warrant of arrest comes a week after police arrested 200 youths who were said to be undergoing military training in a farm belonging to the former MP.
At the same time a crime watch report released by police Friday says that criminal activities drastically dropped last year compared to the previous year.
The report dubbed, CRIME REPORT and DATA 2007 places Nairobi on top of areas that have recorded a radical decrease in crime rate with a 43% drop rate.
North Eastern is second while Rift Valley comes third.
Speaking during the release police spokesman Eric Kiraithe however said economic crimes increased towards the end of the year due to the post election violence that rocked the country after the December 27 polls.
Meanwhile Kiraithe is warning that police are on high alert for any illegal groups out to cause chaos saying that severe action will be taken against anyone found engaging with such groupings.
