Man Taken to court for publicly insulting Uhuru


A Kenya National Union of Teacher (KNUT) official has been arraigned in court for allegedly insulting President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to reports, Kennedy Nyamwanda Ondieki based in Nyamira County has been accused of calling the president a ‘bhang smoker’ during a meeting held last year where he was addressing the countrywide teachers’ strike recently.

Ondieki who was brought before the judge, indicated that Ondieki said: “Uhuru Kenyatta onyure enyasore enyinge yagerire akoraa eserekari ya Kenya gochia rochie.”
