20 January 2016, 13:02 Joseph Njung'eh

Murang'a - A Murang’a based political activist has been arraigned in court for sending an abusive and threatening text message to Senator Kembi Gitura.

James Mwangi, of Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) was arraigned before Murang’a Resident Magistrate Jesse Masiga for misusing telecommunication systems namely Safaricom by sending abusive and threatening messages to Kembi on his mobile phone.

He allegedly committed the offense on January 5, 2016.

The court heard that Mwangi told the Senate Deputy Speaker: “I believe you are crossing the political red line and we shall deal with you....”

He faces a second count for sending the message: “You messed Kiharu and we will not let you destroy it.”

On the third count, he wrote: “Governor Mwangi wa Iria is not accountable to you. I thought you are a smart lawyer which legal students of our times should emulate.”

However, Mwangi denied the charges and was released on a KES 30 000 bond and a surety of similar amount as the case was slated to be heard on March 2, 2016.
