Moses Kuria, Ferdinand Waititu cleared of hate speech charges
By Mercy Asamba | February 20th 2017
Gatundu south MP Moses Kuria and Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu have been acquitted of incitement to violence charges.
The two Members of Parliament were facing hatespeech charges and were arrested and detained alongside four other leaders in Pangani Police Station in June 2016 but later released on a cash bail.
Senior principal magistrate Charity Aluoch said that the video presented in court failed to give enough evidence to warrant conviction of the MPs.
The other leaders who were arrested with them were Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama, Kitutu Masaba MP Timothy Bosire, Bahati MP Kimani, Suna East MP Junet Mohamed, Kilifi woman representative Aisha Jumwa and Busia woman representative Florence Mutua.
