It has been made a heated debate about the line between freedom of expression and insults. Coming hot on the heals following the arrest of Johana Ngeno, MP for Emurua Dikirr who on Monday made utterances against Mama Ngina.

While the MP is spending cold nights in Eldoret police cell over hate speech, many believe his problems have everything to do with his attack on the former First Lady and the mother of the president.

Ng’eno and his counterpart Sudi have faced harsh criticism from many people across the board including the DP who said politics shouldn’t get personal to the level of insulting other people’s mothers. The two didn’t mince their words towards the first family.

Prof. William Maema, a senior partner at Kamau & Maema Advocates (DLA Piper Africa, IKM Advocates) is of the suggestion that the President and their families oils be cushioned from uncouth public utterances using a specific law. He tweeted.

His sentiment has drawn a lot of harsh criticism including his own colleagues.
