Three well-known Kenyan musicians have been charged with inciting ethnic violence through their songs.
The Kikuyu-language lyrics are in support of Uhuru Kenyatta, a Kikuyu politician and deputy prime minister.
The charges have been brought by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC), set up after deadly post-election violence in 2008.
Mr Kenyatta says he has no links to the musicians, who all deny the charges.
Mr Kenyatta – a son of Kenya’s first leader Jomo Kenyatta – is facing trial at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in connection with the election violence.
