Kuria, Muthama arrested over alleged hate-speech remarks
Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama have been arrested over alleged hate speech remarks.
The Gatundu lawmaker has reportedly been taken to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters in Nairobi for interrogation.
Last week while at a campaign rally in Kiambu County, Kuria allegedly directed locals to drive out opposition supporters who voted for NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga in the August 8 poll.
The former Machakos Senator was arrested at his Tala home in Kangundo and driven to Nairobi for questioning.
Kangundo DCI boss David Wafula who led the team that arrested Muthama refused to comment on the matter but said he had received orders from CID headquarters in Nairobi.
Before his arrest, Muthama had just held a meeting with matatu operators.
NASA leaders among them lawyer James Orengo and Junet Mohamed pitched camp at the Pangani Police Station where the former Machakos leader has been taken.
