Starehe MP Charles Njagua a.k.a Jaguar has been released on a cash bail of Ksh. 500,000.
Jaguar was charged with hate speech and incitement following his xenophobic remarks in Gikomba market about two weeks ago.
He was arrested outside parliament buildings by plain clothed officers.
The prosecution had opposed the release of Jaguar on bail citing his previous criminal record where he was charged with causing the death of two people through reckless driving.
“The respondent is a convict, he was sentenced on the 21st of February this year of two counts of causing death with dangerous driving… therefore there is a possibility that his release on bail is a possibility of him committing other crimes,” further argued the prosecution.
Prosecution further argued that Jaguar is a person of influence and may interfere with investigations.
The prosecution further accused Jaguar of plotting an attack on a private property.
The hearing of his case is set for 4th September 2019.
