A Nairobi court has allowed police to conduct a search operation in houses of two men who are under investigation for allegedly writing and uttering words that were abusive and hurtful to Prophet Dr. David Owuor’s congregation.

Milimani Principle Magistrate Ben Nzakyo gave the search warrants two weeks ago to allow for investigations into the allegations against Kevin Kiriga and Paul Akhonya.

“It is necessary to order PC Mohammed Amin to gain entry and search the premises of Kevin Kiriga and Paul Akhonya for the purposes of collection of any electronic computing devices that may have been used in committing the offence,” reads the order.

In an affidavit filed in court, Police Constable Amin said they received a complaint from Julius Ondego Mulera on behalf of Prophet Owuor on May 24, 2018 saying they had received abusive videos and messages posted on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms insulting his congregation.

Amin says they are investigating the two social media users for writing and uttering words with intent to wound religious feelings contrary to Section 138 of the Penal Code.
