Muthama and his colleagues Mohamed Junet (Suna East), Timothy Bosire (Kitutu Masaba), Aisha Juma (Kilifi) and Florence Bosire (Busia) have a pending matter in court over the same offense.

The Senator allegedly made the hate filed remarks during the homecoming rally of Busia Women Representative Florence Mutua last Sunday. Cord chief  Raila Odinga was present during the meeting.

“I received a file from the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in which he has recommended that the suspect be charged with the offence of ethnic contempt," said Nicholas Mutuku, the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions.

"As the matter falls under the NCIC mandate, I have forwarded the inquiry file to the commission and directed that the suspect be immediately interrogated and speedy investigations into the offensive utterances and appropriate action be carried out,” explains the statement further.
