Televangelist Thomas Wahome of the Helicopter Ministries has moved to court seeking to stop Director of Public Prosecution from charging him for using abusive language against a government administrator.
Bishop Wahome wants the High Court in Nyeri to order for suspension of the intended prosecution at Othaya law courts.
According to documents filed in court yesterday, the DPP wants the Bishop accused of using abusive language against Nyeri south deputy county commissioner Henry Ochako on August 28, this year charged.
In an application certified urgent by Justice Hatari Waweru, the Bishop claimed the intended criminal prosecution is aimed at coercing him to drop a pending criminal case in which a village chief is accused of stealing his two dogs worth Sh300,000.
