BY CORRESPONDENT,HOMABAY,20TH DEC 2017-Incitement case that has been facing Suna East MP Junet Mohamed since July this year has come to haunt him once again after police investigators promised a magistrate in Homabay that they will arrest him for skipping court summonses.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigation sought more time to look for the MP over a case that he was charged in July.
According to Homa Bay Director of Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Joseph Tuksho told senior Principal Magistrate Susan Ndegwa that he was not aware that the court had issued warrant of arrest to Mr Junet.
“Mr Tuksho has not been aware that the court issued warrant of arrest to Suna East MP Junet Mohammed,” said Mr Kibowen.
The criminal investigations officer said they will execute the order, “We ask for more time to enable us arrest Mr Junet,” said Mr Kibowen.
Mr Junet was before court in Homa Bay in July and was charged with ethnic contempt for remarks he made during an ODM youth meeting in Homa Bay town.
He has been accused of uttering words which were contravening the National Cohesion and Integrity Act in a political gathering which was attended by Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho, Homa Bay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga and other leaders.
The meeting in which Mr Junet is accused of uttering incitement words was orginised by ODM Party to drum up support for Nasa presidential candidate Raila Odinga a head of August 8 elections.
He was however released on bail but ordered to appear in court on October 24 and which prosecutors claimed he failed to honor. The court set January 11 next year as the date when the case is to be mentioned.
