A case in which Senator Cleophas Malala is charged with inciting residents to violence in the run-up to last year’s repeat presidential election was yesterday adjourned.

Lawyers Charles Malalah and Grace Mburu, representing Mr Malala, who was expected in court for the commencement of the case, said he was on an official trip abroad and sought another date.

The application for adjournment was opposed by the prosecution counsel, Lydia Ombega, who argued that there was no evidence that the senator was not in the country.

Kakamega Senior Principal Magistrate Thomas Muraguri allowed the application and slated the matter for October 29 and 30.
