Aladwa runs to court to block hate speech charges
Former Nairobi mayor George Aladwa has moved to the High Court seeking to stop incitement charges against him.
The High Court on Tuesday allowed him to file a petition to challenge his prosecution, even as the police said they have not completed their investigations in the case.
Judge Joseph Onguto ordered the police not to arrest Mr Aladwa and extended the Sh20,000 bond he was granted last Friday after his arrest.
The Judge directed the Nairobi ODM chairman not to interfere with witnesses in the case and to cooperate with police in the investigations.
He also directed the politician’s lawyers to file the petition seeking to stop the criminal case within seven days.
