Nairobi - Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has been charged with incitement and hate speech and will spend the next few days in a Police cell awaiting his bail hearing Friday.
Kuria denied the above charges in a Nairobi court Wednesday and was remanded till Friday when the matter will be heard and a bail hearing take place.
The MP is in court over his comments which were made in July where he asked machete wielding youth to take up arms against opposition leaders who had been attacking the National Youth Service NYS.
The MP claimed he had been misquoted by the office if the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP said that it was not the case and that the MP had a case to answer.
Chief Magistrate Daniel Ogembo said that Kuria should spend the next two days in a cell at the Kilimani Police Station.
He will rule on the MP's bail application on Friday.
" The accused has a habit of repeating this offence and should be denied bail," the prosecution asked.
