Two Senators Arrested Over Hate Speech

Kenyan Police has detained two lawmakers on Monday over allegations of hate speech.

“Moses Kuria, a member of parliament and Johnson Muthama, a former senator, have been arrested on hate speech allegations,” ministry spokesman, Mwenda Njoka announced

The arrest came over reported cases of hate speech since the Supreme Court annulled the results of the August 8 Kenyan presidential election.

On Sunday, Muthama, a former senator for the opposition Wiper party, gave a speech peppered with insults aimed at Kenyatta.

“When you (Uhuru) are drinking your alcohol, when you are getting drunk, stop thinking we are children of a monkey,” Muthama said according to a recording posted on YouTube.
