Orengo offers to represent 'arrested' bloggers in court

25 January 2016, 18:36 William Korir

Nairobi - In an expected move, a team of lawyers led by the CORD Coalition's very own will represent a group of bloggers arrested in recent weeks by government officers.

The bloggers have been arrested for a series of reasons in recent weeks, most to do with the apparent negative portrayal of the government on social media.

" We will represent them in court," Siaya Senator James Orengo, a lawyer by profession told News24.

" The belief is that their Constitutional rights have been infringed and that they deserve a fair hearing so we will chip in," he added.

Orengo is not new to representing bloggers.

Last year, he represented blogger Robert Alai in court after he was arrested for sharing President Uhuru Kenyatta's personal telephone number on social media.

Just recently, former NTV journalist Yassin Juma was arrested by Police over what was termed as improper use of a social media gadget.

He was accused of sharing information on the recent attack on a KDF camp in Somalia.

He was released Monday with no charge.

Juma, Alai, Cyprian Nyakundi, Patrick Msafari, Seth Odongo, Charles Dienya, Anthony Mburu, Eddy Illah, Phelix G-Cord, George Nyongesa are the bloggers Orengo will represent.

They have all denied any wrongdoing on their part.

" Nowadays, it seems speaking out on the government is a crime. This will not stop us in anyway," Alai stated.
