Nairobi - Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has finally been released from Police custody after spending nearly 1 week in remand.
The MP was arrested last week Tuesday to answer to accusations of hate speech and incitement and his bail hearing was set for Monday after the country's courts closed for the remainder of the week thanks to the visit to the country of Pope Francis.
He was released Monday at the Milimani Law Courts on a KES 1 million cash bail.
The hearing of the case has been set for January 27,2016.
Kuria has been in deep trouble for inciting Panga (Machete) wielding youth to attack Opposition leaders allegedly against the National Youth Service.
He was ordered arrested last week by the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP Keriako Tobiko over his tirade which was captured in a video whilst he was speaking in his Gatundu backyard.
