Kenyan MP arrested for allegedly insulting President Kenyatta and Kenyans on Twitter are not having it

He is alleged to have referred to the President as “a son of bi*ch” (mtoto wa mbwa) while addressing Opposition supporters in Kawangware area, Nairobi over the weekend.

Mr. Owino was taken to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over alleged abusive remarks on Mr. Kenyatta.

He is alleged to have referred to the President as “a son of bi*ch” (mtoto wa mbwa) while addressing Opposition supporters in Kawangware area, Nairobi over the weekend. Officers at the DCI headquarters were ordered to study the clip that captured the said utterances for possible action.

Traffic at the busy Thika highway was brought to a standstill after residents of Kiambu hold demos demanding arrest of the legislator.

similarly, Githunguri, Limuru, Githurai, Ruiru & Gatundu residents also held demos demanding arrest of Mr. Owino over his abusive remarks.

On social media, his remarks elicited strong reactions from a section of Kenyans and after news of his arrest was made public Kenyans took to social media to express their reactions.

"Point to me any Kikuyu politician who has made a career without abusing Raila Odinga. I will join you in castigating Babu Owino." Jared Okeno posted on facebook.
