Moses Kuria and Ferdinand Waititu Acquitted Of Hate Speech


Moses Kuria and Ferdinand Waititu have been acquitted of hate speech charged due to lack of evidence.

Kuria who represents Gatundu South and Ferdinand who represents Kabete respectively, were acquitted by Nairobi Magistrate Charity Oluoch.

Oluoch who ruled that the video evidence presented in court could not be used as the English and Kiswahili translations provided as part of the evidence in the case were incorrect.

Kuria and Waititu were facing incitement to violence charges, having been arrested alongside four other MPs in what was commonly referred as the Pangani Six when they were arrested and detained in June last year.

In her ruling, the magistrate concluded that the video content of the evidence adduced in court could have been altered or edited.
