Arrested CORD and Jubilee legislators file an appeal against decision to detain them

15, Jun 2016

8 legislators from both CORD and Jubilee this morning through their lawyers have filed an appeal against a decision to have them detained until Friday over alleged hate remarks. The legislators are arguing that their arrest goes against the right to post bail, a claim that the office of the director of public prosecution refutes claiming that the legilators will interefere with police investigations. The 8, Moses Kuria, Ferdinand Waititu, Aisha Jumwa, Florence Mutua, Johnstone Muthama, Junet Mohammed, Timothy Bosire And Kimaani Ngunjiri were arrested yesterday following public outcry over alleged remarks made in public believed to amount to incitement and hate speech.
