A Magistrate court has granted reprieve to Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria after acquitting him of incitement to violence charges.
Senior Principal Magistrate Teresiah Nyangene has ruled that prosecution did not give sufficient evidence to prove the charges against him.
The verdict was issued in a case in which the MP had been accused of incitement to violence, hate speech and fanned ethnic hatred.
Mr Kuria was accused of posting on his Facebook account two years ago, that a terror attack at Gikomba market that killed 15people was orchestrated by ‘Odhiambos’ and not ‘Somalis’.
The magistrate ruled that prosecution failed to prove the Facebook account that spread the hate speech belongs to the legislator.
