Kenyan MPs appear in court over hate speech

Six Kenyan Members of Parliament are due to appear in court over allegations of hate speech.

On Sunday, a Member of Parliament aligned to the governing Jubilee coalition, allegedly called for the assassination of the former Prime Minister and opposition leader, Raila Odinga.

Opposition Members of Parliament responded with similar comments.

The head of Kenya police’s CID division, Ndegwa Muhoro told journalists that the police will arrest anyone or personality who propagates hate speech.
