A Nairobi court today acquitted Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and his Kabete counterpart Ferdinand Waititu of incitement to violence charges by allegedly calling for the assassination of former Premier Raila Odinga and circumcision of Luo community for lack evidence.
Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Charity Oluoch in her ruling said that the authenticity of the Video clip tabled in court that was recorded during Njogu wa Njoroge thanksgiving ceremony on June 12,2016 at Kasarani Stadium by a key prosecution witness was questionable.
Kuria and Waititu are charged of making public statements threatening the life of opposition leader Raila Odinga, a member of the Luo ethnic group, act that could have breached peace in the country.
Oluoch also said that the English and Kiswahili translations provided as part of the evidence in the case were incorrect and the content of the evidence adduced in court could have been altered or edited.
Kuria and Waititu were facing incitement to violence charges, having been arrested alongside four other MPs in what was commonly referred as the Pangani Six when they were arrested and detained in June last year.
