Armed police officers have this morning raided the homes of Senator Johnstone Muthama, Kitutu Masaba MP, Timothy Bosire and Suna East MP, Junet Mohammed after Inspector General of Police ordered them to record a statement at the Directorate fo Criminal Investigation office for alleged hate speech.

Muthama and Bosire are currently on house arrest after the flying squad raided their respective Runda and Karen homes at 5 a.m in the morning in efforts to arrest them.

Junet Mohammed has however been captured by armed policemen just an hour ago at the Nation Center building after attending a live interview.
He was accompanied by Siaya Senator James Orengo and Homa Bay MP Peter Kaluma where he condemned the arrests.

“Why do they want to arrest us when they have not called us for grilling? This is impunity and the police are being used to harass us.”

CORD has also issued a statement citing that none of its members had been summoned to appear before the DCI.

The ongoing efforts to tackle incitement in the country did however take a turn last night when MPs Moses Kuria and Ferdinand Waititu appeared before the DCI for questioning.
