Sonko wants Orengo, Muthama, Kajwang jailed

26 August 2014, 13:02 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko will follow up a case in which he is seeking to have CORD leaders jailed over hate speech during the Saba Saba day rally.

The Senator had sought orders from the High Court to commence proceedings against CORD leaders for breaking an earlier agreement not to use hate speech during the July 7 rally at Uhuru Park.

Justice Isaac Lenaola agreed with Sonko, saying that his petition sought to protect the public from the effects of poor decision making by politicians.

Sonko wants Senators James Orengo, Johnson Muthama, Otieno Kajwang’ and Elizabeth Ongoro jailed for six months or pay a fine of KES 2 million each for dishonouring an earlier court order that had stopped them from making certain remarks.

The Court decided that the preliminary readings and hearings will kick off November 20, 2014.

Sonko insists that the comments made by the four, together with former Makadara MP Reuben Ndolo against president Uhuru Kenyatta's government amounted to hate speech and needed to be punished.

The leaders though, speaking in the aftermath of the rally, had said that there was nothing wrong with their remarks.

" The remarks made were in line and represented the reality of the state of the country at the moment, Ongoro had reacted to questions about her remarks that pointed at discord in the ruling coalition.

She had called on Kenyans to march to State House and spend the night at Uhuru Park on the Saba Saba day to fight for their rights.
