IN PICTURES: Nyong’o among MPs’ supporters ‘blocked’ from accessing court
Hundreds of Jubilee and CORD supporters thronged the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi where the hate speech case against eight legislators is going on.
The legislators who were taken to Milimani Law Courts at 5:45 am Friday, were being detained at Muthaiga and Pangani police stations and stayed in custody for four days.

Among those blocked from accessing the court’s premises was Kisumu Senator Anyang’ Nyong’o. He was, however, allowed access later.
Security remained tight to shield the supporters from forcefully entering the court premises.
The lawmakers from the Jubilee and Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) include MPs Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Kimani Ngunjiri (Bahati), Ferdinand Waititu (Kabete), Junet Mohamed (Suna East), Timothy Bosire (Kitutu Masaba), Aisha Jumwa (Kilifi Women Rep), Florence Mutua (Busia Women Rep) and Senator Johnstone Muthama (Machakos).
The hearing is currently underway.
