Hate speech case against Waititu, Kuria case adjourned due to witness absence
The hate speech case of MPs Ferdinand Waititu of Kabete and Moses Kuria of Gatundu South hit a snag yesterday as key witnesses were absent.
Lawyer Duncan Ondimu urged the court to adjourn as the witness had travelled upcountry.
“I am disappointed by the manner in which the prosecution is handling this matter. I will grant an adjournment but no further adjournments shall be entertained,” senior principal magistrate Charity Aluoch said.
Defense counsels took issue with how the prosecution is handling the case, saying the absence of the witnesses is intended to delay the case.
Kuria and Waititu were charged with incitement and hate speech in June. They are out of Sh2 million bail and Sh5 million bond each.
The mention is on October 5.
