MOMBASA - A Kenyan lawmaker and prominent Muslim preacher appeared in court on Thursday accused of inciting violence, days after he said he would be willing to fund a group campaigning for independence for the country's coastal region.

Sheikh Mohammed Dor was charged with "incitement to violence" and uttering words that "indicated or implied that it was or might be desirable to disobey the lawful authority of the government of Kenya."

Police arrested the leader of the Mombasa Republican Council Omar Mwamnuadzi on Monday, as part of a drive to eliminate the separatist group from the tourist hotspot and trade hub.
