Senteu Sadera, a 32-year old man from Narok County was on Wednesday evening (11th July) arrested by detectives from the County Directorate of Criminal Investigations for allegedly writing a defamatory post about Narok Governor, Samuel Tunai on Facebook.
The post was on a Facebook group known as Narok Let’s Talk, according to Zachary Kariuki from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations in Narok county. Mr Kariuki went on to say that the Facebook post is said to have insinuated that the county leaders were ‘devil worshippers’.
Senteu had allegedly posted on the platform that the county leadership had gone to dogs and that they should hold prayers for the county. The statement labelling Samuel Tunai as a devil was what alerted detectives from the DCI to rapidly launch an investigation where they arrested him at his house at Total Estate.
“The post also termed the County assembly Majority Leader Benard Torome as a devil worshipper and that the County Senator Ledama Ole Kina had allegedly sold his soul to the ‘devil’ and that the MCAs were executive’s bark dogs,” said Mr Kariuki.
Also, in the doghouse is the Facebook Administrator of the said group who according to top detectives handling the case, was supposed to regulate the content being posted in the group by members.
Senteu will be apparently appear in court to face the charges of publishing the obscene content via social media. It is unclear which law he will be charged under.
