Priest charged for calling police 'murderers', inciting residents to harm them

10 July 2016, 04:59 Steve Njuguna

Nyahururu - A priest appeared in a Nyahururu court Friday where he was charged for inciting members of the public to violence.

Rev Moses Mwaura Ndegwa of St Joseph Gatitu ACK, Nairobi denied the charges before resident Magistrate Ms Margaret Mwangi and was released on KES 300,000 bond with a surety of a similar amount or KES 70,000 cash bail.

Rev Ndegwa was charged that on July 6, this year at Mairo–Inya Township, within Nyandarua County, without lawful excuse said that "the officers were removing stones with a lot of energy and that’s why they killed the lawyer, his client and the taxi driver,” words that described police officers as murderers and which implied that it might desirable to harm them.

The court heard that Mr Ndegwa, who is intending to vie for Ndaragwa parliamentary seat in the next general election had led the residents of Mairo–Inya Township to block the Nyahururu–Nyeri road to protest against insecurity in the area when he uttered the words, an act which was calculated to lead to physical injury of the police officers.

He was arrested and taken to Nyahururu police station where he was charged with the offences.

Mugo Mbugua who represented Ndegwa pleaded with the court to release the accused person on a reasonable bond or cash bail since he was a man of God and a resident of Shamata village, 20 km from Nyahururu town.

“I am pleading with the court to release my client on a reasonable bond or cash bail as he is an outstanding man of God and a resident of Shamata village in Nyandarua County and therefore he cannot skip bail,” said the lawyer who also requested the court to issue the accused person with all documents.

The case will be heard on August 16 and mentioned on July 22, this year.

Two police officers are among the witnesses expected to appear before the court to testify.
