Drama as MP is arrested on the street over hate talk: There was drama early today outside Nation Center along Kimathi Street in Nairobi, as Flying Squad officers pounced on Suna East MP Junet Mohamed. Junet is among four Cord lawmakers who the police wanted to arrest over hate speech. And today morning, Flying Squad officers seized Junet outside Nation Centre, moments after leaving a live interview with NTV. Mr Mohamed was surrounded by Flying Squad police officers who had been waiting for him outside the building since 7.30am. The officers were led by squad head Said Kiprotich. The lawmaker had been invited to NTV for a discussion on hate speech. But his arrest was never short of drama as his colleagues James Orengo (Siaya Senator) and Peter Kaluma (Homabay Town) engaged the officers in a scuffle.

MPs due in court over incitement remarks: Six MPs among them Moses Kuria and Junet Mohamed are due to be arraigned in court this afternoon to face hate speech charges, Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Ndegwa Muhoro has said. Mr Muhoro said the files of the hate speech charges against the lawmakers have been processed by his officers and were ready to be presented to the court. This comes after the MPs among them Kilifi Women Representative Aisha Jumwa and Kitutu Masaba’s Timothy Bosire recorded their statements with the police. Ferdinand Waititu and Kimani Ngujiri had already recorded their statements late last evening. “Some of the war mongers are currently recording statements with the Criminal Investigations department, and will be presenting them to the courts this afternoon” Muhoro earlier told a press conference at NCIC headquarters. “We will go for them despite their political positions,” he said. “We are going to deal accordingly with all the hate mongers in the country.”

Surveyors blame Kaimenyi for graft in Lands ministry: Surveyors have accused Lands Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi of perpetuating corruption in the Lands ministry by creating a ‘vacuum’ in the sector. Addressing a press briefing, the Institution of Surveyors ( ISK) chairman Stephen Ambani alleged that the vacuum in the Lands ministry is a result of failure to reconstitute the lands control boards mandated to regulate the sale, transfer, lease and sub division of agricultural land. He observed that without the boards, and the delay in their reconstitution, Kenyans have been forced to turn to the defunct board members where they are paying illegal transaction fees in order to get the requisite documents and assent for their transactions. “We are not sure why the CS has failed to reconstitute the boards. This has turned to be a cash cow for the former members who are now charging hefty and illegal fees to Kenyans who require services,” Ambani said.
