The hearing of incitement to violence case against former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama was on Thursday adjourned to May 3.
Muthama is charged alongside activist Japheth Muroko, alias Japhet Thuranira and are out on a cash bail of 100,000 each.
Milimani chief magistrate Francis Anday put off the case following an application by Muthama’s lawyer John Khaminwa.
Khaminwa told the court that his client is engaged in other official duties of National Mining conference.
The charge against the two read that on September 23, 2015, at Uhuru Park, Nairobi county, he uttered words in Swahili that have been translated as: “From Friday next week if teachers will not have been paid nobody will go to work and whoever goes shall be stoned, “indicating that it was desirable to bring death and physical injury to persons in Kenya.”
Muroko alone faced a charge translated from Swahili to mean: “We are saying, the motion being brought to impeach Uhuru, any Member of Parliament who votes against it will be lynched.”
