On Monday, the Gatundu South MP paid Sh250,000 for the arstist, John Gichiri, after the court reviewed his cash bail from Sh700,000 to Sh250,000.

Gichiri was arrested and arraigned in court on Monday last week after a public out cry in regards to the ‘Ikamba’ mockery song. 

Gichiri was arraigned before Milimani Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi and charged with three count's of ethnic contempt. 

The artist denied the charges and was granted Sh1 Million bond or Sh700,000 cash bail. 

Kuria now says that lawyers will move to the High court to seek anticipatory bail for the two other artistes linked to the 'Ikamba' song.

The two are being sought for by the police over the song that created public outcry.

"I have instructed lawyers to immediately file for anticipatory bail for the other two artistes who are being sought for by the police," Kuria told journalists at the Milimani Law Courts on Monday.

The controversial MP said that the 'Ikamba' song was interpreted out of context denying claims it mocked the Kamba community.
