Kennedy Nyamwanda Ondieki based in Nyamira County is accused of terming the Head of State a bhang smoker during a meeting held last year on December 23 where the accused was addressing the countrywide teachers’ strike.

A charge sheet before Resident Magistrate Ms Alice Towett, indicated that Ondieki said: “Uhuru Kenyatta onyure enyasore enyinge yagerire akoraa eserekari ya Kenya gochia rochie.
