Kuria might still face jail over hate speech

15 January 2015, 14:38 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Gatundu South Mp Moses Kuria might still face jail over hate speech claims.

Kuria has been granted an out of court settlement by the High Court over comments he made on social media last year which were declared ethnically infringing.

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission NCIC allowed him to get an out of court settlement if he agreed to public apologies.

He was to apologize in public over his comments and post the same comments on all his social media platforms as well as on all national newspapers.

On Thursday, Chief Magistrate Enock Cherono warned Kuria that he had only 30 days to apologize or face the full wrath of the law.

" The accused is granted a 30 day window to adhere to terms of his release or face fresh prosecution," Cherono said.

Kuria has already put out an apology on Thursday's edition of the Daily Nation newspaper.

The opposition CORD coalition has insisted that jailed blogger Allan Wadi be pardoned just like Gatundu MP Moses Kuria who has been pardoned for hate speech.

He agreed to put out a public apology and a written apology in national newspapers to secure his release.

Wadi though, was jailed two years for undermining the authority of president Uhuru Kenyatta by insulting him in a series of tweets late last year.

CORD feel that the two cases present a case of selective justice and say that Wadi must also be allowed to apologize, same as the pardoned Kuria.

" We find it ridiculous that Wadi was jailed two years and Kuria pardoned in two obvious cases of hate speech. Why not serve the same fate?,"  Siaya Senator James Orengo said of the case.

Kuria is a member of the ruling Jubilee coalition.
