Courts throws out hate speech charges against Muthama

Chief magistrate Daniel Ogembo has dismissed charges against Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama on hate speech.

The court on Thursday ruled that the case against him was an abuse of court process.

Senator Muthama was arrested and detained alongside seven other legislators before being charged with the offense of incitement to violence.

The court said it was wrong to have him face trial for an offense committed last year while the rest are being charged with the ones for this year.
