One of the two musicians behind the controversial Ikamba song was today morning arraigned in court and charged with three counts of ethnic contempt.
Appearing before Nairobi Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi, John Gichiri Njau denied the charges and was released on a cash bail of Ksh.700,000.
The hearing of the case was set for April 19, 2018.
Officials from the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) said a hunt for Gichiri’s co-accused is underway and he would also be arraigned in court.
The Kikuyu song was apparently released in reaction to the disputed ban of charcoal trade in Kitui by Governor Charity Ngilu.
