27 September 2012, 14:29
Nairobi - Capital News reports that Embakasi MP Ferdinand Waititu will spend the night in police custody after he was charged with incitement to violence and hate speech, as he awaits bail ruling on Friday.
Capital News reports that his detention follows an objection by the office of the Director of Public Prosecution for his release, on grounds that he may abscond court attendance.
Through state counsel Lillian Obuo, the DPP said the lawmaker had refused to honour police summons and went into hiding when he learnt that he was being sought, and going by previous behaviour he is likely to skip court hearings.
