Kenyan activist Edwin Kiama has been released on a Ksh. 500,000 cash bail by a Nairobi Magistrate Court after an alleged cyber-bullying of President Uhuru Kenyatta on Twitter and Facebook.
Edwin Kiama famously known as Muthema wa Kiama posted a public notice on social media informing the world of the “incapability” of the President to obtain a loan from International financial organizations on behalf of the citizens.
This came at a time of public unrest over a Ksh. 255 billion applied to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to handle the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.
In view of this, the enlightened public smelled a rat in the whole process of the acquisition of the loan amid piled up public debt. The loan has been termed as unnecessary at this point in time.
As a result of the aforementioned actions taken by the activist, it has been reported of the arrest and detainment of the activist Edwin Kiama at Nairobi Central Police Station.
According to his lawyer, Martha Karua. The cash bail issued to the activist came amid court’s plans to detain the activist for 14 days awaiting the court decision.
