BY NT CORRESPONDENT.
Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria now wants to be allowed to settle a hate speech case out of court.
The legislator asked the court for some time to pursue an out of court settlement with the National Cohesion and Integration Commission.
The government prosecutor told the court that Mr Kuria has written a letter to NCIC to have the matter settled out court and is awaiting feedback.
The matter was scheduled for hearing today and tomorrow.
“We have no objection to allow reconciliation out of court,” prosecution counsel told the court.
The court allowed time to the parties to settle the issue out of court.
In the matter, Mr Kuria allegedly incited youth in Nyeri in 2015, to attack and “slash” politicians opposed to National Youth Service projects in the county.
The ‘panga’ remarks, as they are commonly known, were captured and aired on national television and reported in the local dailies.
Proceedings resume March 14.
