Moses Kuria arrested

Kuria has been detained at the Pangani Police Station.

The legislator was arrested on Monday over hate speech remarks and is currently detained at Pangani Police Station.

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) had earlier said it was investigating Kuria and 277 other individuals for incitement and hate speech.

NCIC Chairman Francis ole Kaparo said that if Mr Kuria will be found culpable, the commission will recommend his prosecution as stipulated by the NCIC Act.

Last week, a video went viral across social media showing Kuria making vulgar utterances in Kikuyu against Nasa leader Raila Odinga.

In a Facebook post on September 5, Kuria said they were ready for another election but that they will hunt people who did not elect Uhuru Kenyatta.

He later admitted that he was ready to face the consequences and even stated rhetorically that he was ready to be jailed.
