Nairobi - The six male politicians currently detained at Pangani Police Station over hate-speech are being held in two separate cells.

News24 on Thursday confirmed that the lawmakers, who are spending the third day in custody before they appear in court on Friday, were separated from each other based on their political affiliations.

Jubilee MPs Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Ferdinand Waititu (Kabete) and Kimani Ngunjiri (Bahati) were arrested on Tuesday, following an order by the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett.

Their opposition colleagues Senator Johstone Muthama (Machakos), MPs Junet Mohammed (Suna West) Timothy Bosire (Kitutu Masaba), Florence Mutua (Busia) and Aisha Jumwa (Kilifi) were also locked up the same day on same charges.

A police officer based at the station who spoke on condition of anonymity said the legislators are being held at Pangani in two groups. The station has four cells for male offenders.

“Kuria, Waititu and Ngunjiri from Jubilee are in one cell. The CORD lawmakers Muthama, Junet and Bosire are in another cell. We were cognizant of the bitter rivalry between the two coalitions as we allocated the cells,” he said.

Florence Mutua the Busia Women Representative and her Kilifi Counterpart Aisha Jumwa are being held at Kilimani and Muthaiga police stations respectively.
