The complainants were National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) and Muslims for Human Rights (Muhuri).
In the case, Mwakwere is alleged to have made a speech, during a by-election campaign in his constituency in July 2010, to the effect that indigenous coastal people have been oppressed by Arabs.
The Director of Public Prosecution did not oppose and the case was withdrawn under Section 87 (A) of the Criminal Procedure Code.
Over the weekend, Mwakwere publicly apologised for making the remarks.
The Minister had made several attempts to block the case that would have seen him dropped from cabinet.
He made four attempts to block the case by moving to the High Court to stop his arraignment.
Since last year, the minister has failed to appear before Nairobi Chief Magistrate’s court to answer to the charges.
