Nine Moi University undergraduates have been apprehended for spreading hate speech texts on the WhatsApp social media platform.
The culprits that have since ignited a ruckus cautioned a few communities to leave the Uasin Gishu region before the August 9 General Election on the off chance that they don't decide and vote in favor of a specific official president candidate of their concern.
Arguing their innocence, one of the understudies let the court know that they were not the beginners of that source of information. Beatrice Wangari Kumari said she got the disdain message from Central Kenya, and they had previously told police the first source author.
The head detective official, Sophia Ibrahim, requested that the court confine the comrades in the interest of equity. Ibrahim claimed that they were a flight risk since the police were at this point laying out their homes.
She further expressed that the nine wouldn't be secure in the event that they were delivered as their feelings had isolated suppositions.
Head Magistrate Onkoba Mogire gave a verdict that the students be confined for three days to permit exhaustive genuine investigations.
