Pauline Njoroge, Jubilee Party digital strategist and Kenya Kwanza government critic, was on Saturday 22, July arrested together with her two friends in Watamu, Kilifi County. The trio were headed to Malindi to see Hells Kitchen, Gedi Ruins, and the first Church in Malindi that was set up by the Portuguese.
“We left the hotel that afternoon to go see Gedi Ruins, Hells Kitchen and the first Church in Malindi, which was set up by the Portuguese. When we left the hotel we found a double cabin vehicle parked outside the resort,” said Njoroge.
I have never seen a roll of bhang in my entire life, said Pauline
According to the police, Pauline and her friends; Jane Mwangi and Emanze Jilani were found in possession of narcotics drugs and psychotropic substances, which is against the law. However, Pauline refuted the claims and said that she has never seen a roll of bhang in her entire life, and that the whole thing was a setup by the police.
Appearing before the Malindi Law Courts on Monday 24th, the prosecution gave an ear to the case, but dropped it as there was no clear evidence.
Pauline Njoroge accused of false publication
After the drug case, Pauline was again accused of false publication on a post she made on her Twitter account regarding a police operation in Nyalenda, Kisumu County. This resulted to several claims by the police that Pauline has been posting inflammatory and inciteful messages contrary to Section 22 (1) (b) (d) of the Computer Misuse and Cybercrimes Act no. 5 of 2018.
Led by Vivian Kambaga, the prosecution counsel argued that Pauline’s ridiculous posts have resulted to polarization of her followers locally, regionally and internationally. They therefore withdrew the application to have the trio denied a bond.
“As we speak, my gadgets are with the Cyber Crime unit on Kiambu Road, because the powers that be are desperately still trying to get something to pin on me after their previous attempt failed terribly and exposed their evil scheme,” said Pauline Njoroge.
