A Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) official from Nyamira County has been charged for claiming that President Uhuru Kenyatta is a bhang smoker.
Kennedy Nyamwanda Ondieki, who is Knut’s regional branch chairman, was arraigned in court on Wednesday to face charges of undermining authority of a public officer contrary to section 132 of the penal code.
The charge sheet read that on the 23rd day of December 2015 at Geswewe village, Bogisaba sub-location within Nyamira County, Ondieki uttered the words, “Uhuru Kenyatta onyure enyasore enyinge yagerire akoraa eserekari ya Kenya gochia rochie.”
Which loosely translates to: “Uhuru Kenyatta has smoked a lot of bhang to the extent that he leading the country to a river.”
Mr Nyamwanda’s case comes barely a month after President Uhuru Kenyatta forgave Member of County Assembly (MCA) Samuel Aboko, who had accused him of smoking the drug.
