Narok blogger charged with posting abusive message against Nkaissery on his facebook page

Narok - A 28-year-old Narok blogger has been arraigned before a Narok Court charged with two counts of posting on his Facebook account insults against Cabinet Secretary for Interior Major General (retired) Joseph Nkaissery and hate speech contrary to the National Cohesion and Integration Commission Act.

Jackson Saruni Tirkolo, a banker, appeared before Narok Chief Magistrate Wilbroda Juma charged that on May 1st this year he posted abusive, insulting and threatening and other unprintable words on a Facebook known as an “Elelero e Maa” group page which were insulting to the person of Nkaissery and meant to create a breach of peach.

 Another charge indicated that the said words were dangerous to the cohesion and integration of the nation as they were meant incite members of the Maasai community living in Narok against the Kikuyu community.

 Tirkolo was however not required to plead as his lawyer Ken Kilele told the court that his client was indisposed.
The case will now be mentioned on Thursday May 19th when he can plead to the charges.
He is out on a police bond of Sh150, 000.

 Last week, the court ordered police to release Tirkolo on police bond after the prosecution failed to prefer charges against him saying the investigations were not complete.
The police had wanted more time to hold the banker in custody but the court declined.          

Through the prosecutor; State counsel David Mwangi the police had sort the court permission to hold Tirkolo for a further five days saying the offense was serious since the post was intended to create ethnic hatred two communities namely the Kikuyus and Maasai.

Mwangi also argued that the post was directed at the cabinet secretary and they are yet to record a statement from him.
