Raila cautioned against freeing six MPs held over hate speech

Nairobi - National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale has told off CORD politicians for threatening to protest over the plight of six MPs that are currently detained for hate speech.

Duale Thursday said the legislators are under lawful custody as directed by the Judiciary and accused CORD leader Raila Odinga of attempting to interfere with the court process.

The opposition chief announced at a press briefing Thursday that CORD will hold a rally at Uhuru Park in honour of the MPs who are behind bars. They announced that the rally would be held Saturday if the legislators are not released within 24 hours.

“The MPS are in custody as ordered by the magistrate and affirmed by the High Court. CORD cannot pick and choose which rulings to comply with and which to disrespect,” said Duale.

“CORD leaders have always lectured us on due process. They must practice what they preach,” added Duale who emphasized that there is no relationship between dialogue on IEBC and the anti-hate speech crackdown.
