Martha Wanjiru Miano was released unconditionally by a Nyeri Court yesterday.

Nyeri residents celebrated outside Nyeri Law Courts as online activist Martha Miano was set free by court.

She had been detained by police on allegations that she posted a statement on Facebook allegedly insulting Governor Nderitu Gachagua’s brother Rigathi Gachagua.

Nyeri Resident Magistrate John Aringo ruled that her seven- day- detainment was violation of the Constitution and that the police affidavit of detaining her was wrongly drafted.
