West Pokot based comedian and activist Dennis Kapchok Ruto who is popularly known as Mulmulwas is expected in court today after he arrested in Kapenguria and brought to Nairobi over claims of hate speech against a senator.
Police said they are investigating claims of cyber harassment under the Computer Misuse and Cyber Crime Act over a post he made on his social media against Senate Majority Leader Samuel Poghisio.
Poghisio who is also the local senator had apparently complained to police the post-Kapchok made was malicious and a form of harassment to him.
This prompted police to move to action and traced Kapchok to Kapenguria where he was arrested and brought to the city.
He is expected to be produced before the court where police will seek more time to hold him as they investigate the issue.
