Senteu Sadera, a 32-year-old man from Narok county was on Wednesday, July 11, arrested and thrown behind bars after insulting the county's governor and its leadership on Facebook.
TUKO.co.ke has learnt that the man made a post through his Facebook account on Monday, July 9, and shared it to a popular group dubbed Narok Let's Talk, insinuating that some of the county leaders were devil worshipers.
Sadera's arrest was confirmed by Narok's County Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Zachary Kariuki who said the suspect claimed the county needed prayers because it was going to the dogs thanks to Governor Samuel Tunai's devil worshiping.
Kariuki also added that police were looking for the administrator of the group in which Sadera made the post to help in the case as he failed to regulate the content being posted in the group by members.
TUKO.co.ke has learnt that undercover police officers launched investigation following Sadera's post and arrested him at his house in Total estate, Narok.
Sadera will be arraigned in court soon to face charges of publishing obscene content via social media.
His arrest came barely weeks after President Uhuru Kenyatta assented to the Cybercrime Bill which aimed at seeing anyone posting fake news on social media face the wrath of the law.
The computer and Cyber crimes Bill says a person who knowingly publishes information that is false in print, broadcast, data or over a computer system, that is calculated or results in panic, chaos, violence among citizens of the republic, or which is likely to discredit the reputation of a person commits an offence and shall on conviction be liable to a fine not exceeding KSh 5 million or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 10 years or to both.
