Muthama and Orengo in a past event.
Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama is currently before the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) in Upper Hill, Nairobi, over alleged hate remarks he made in Busia on June 27.
The senator had on Monday refused to be interrogated and did not record a statement, saying the hate speech allegations against him were based on falsehoods.
The NCIC had then ordered him to appear Wednesday to make a case on why he wants the words “Kikuyu and Kalenjin communities” removed in his summons.
The senator’s lawyer James Orengo on Monday said his client would only record a statement or be interrogated once the words are removed.
STANDS BY EVERY WORD
Mr Muthama told journalists then that he stands by “every word” he uttered in Busia on June 27.
The Opposition Cord coalition was holding a rally for Busia Woman Representative Florence Mutua, who had been locked in a cell for four days, when Mr Muthama made the alleged hate remarks.
