The Wages Of Sin… High Court Refuses To Stop Police From Arresting Muthama Over His Charges of Incitement And Disobedience
Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama is in big trouble following the statement he made at a public rally on September 23.
Muthama moved to court on Thursday in a bid to halt the police from arresting him over hate speech, but Justice Onguto denied the Machakos Senator his wish.
As if that’s not enough, Nairobi Chief Magistrate Daniel Ogembo issued summons today requiring Senator Johnson Muthama to answer to charges of incitement.
The office of Director of Public Prosecutions had also issued similar summons to the Machakos lawmaker.
The seasoned politician is expected in court on October 15 to plead to the charges. It will be interesting to see how the law takes its course.
Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria is the other victim who has a date with the Justice system. The MP was also caught on camera hurling words that incited violence.
