Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina was on Tuesday, May 19 summoned to appear in court over remarks he made on live TV.
The magistrate court summoned Ole Kina to appear before court on June 2, over what they term as ‘ethnic contempt’.
On February 9 during the JKL show on Citizen TV, Ole Kina uttered the words, “…Maasai issues will be articulated by Maasais not Manje…who can be able to get an audience in Mount Kenya”.
According to the charge sheet, Ole Kina’s words Arte meant to ’incite feelings of discrimination against non-Maasai communities living in Narok County based on their ethnicity’.
Prosecution counsel James Gachoka told the court that they were unable to arrest Ole Kina because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ole Kina came under sharp criticism when, during a BBI rally in Narok County, he advocated for issues of the Man community to be addressed by the Maasais.
On February 25, the National Cohesion and Integration Commission in conjunction with the DCI arrested Ole Kina over the BBI remarks, and was released hours later
