Mwakwere hate speech prosecution to proceed
08 August 2012, 16:47
Nairobi - Environment minister Chirau Ali Mwakwere has lost an attempt to temporarily block his arrest and prosecution over hate speech charges, Daily Nation reports.
Lady Justice Florence Muchemi on Wednesday declined to give an order stopping the police from arresting the Matuga MP, only certifying the application as urgent and directing that it be heard next week.
Mwakwere is at the risk of losing his cabinet seat in the event that he is charged on Thursday after summons were issued for him to appear in court to answer the charges.
