POLICE: MUTHAMA has no case to answer after exposing UHURU and WAIGURU “bedroom affairs”
A senior police attached to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has confirmed that police are finding it difficult to progress with hate speech charges against Machakos Senator, Johnstone Muthama.
On Friday, Muthama was ordered by Interior Coordination Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Nkaissery, to record a statement with the CID over abusive remarks directed at President Uhuru Kenyatta and Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Miss Anne Waiguru.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, the senior CID officer said as at Monday, police have nothing to charge Muthama with since what he said does not amount to hate speech.
He said most issues Muthama raised in Uhuru Park were in form of ‘abuse and insinuations directed at individuals’ and it will be nonsense to charge him with ‘hate speech’.
The officer said that the State will be forced to prefer other civil charges by linking his utterances to amorphous laws like “undermining the authority of State officers” – the same law that was used against Allan Wadi.
Muthama is accused of saying that Waiguru is Uhuru’s clandestine lover and that it is why he is protecting her even after being named in the Sh 791 million National Youth Service (NYS) scandal.
