Hate speech users cautioned

28 February 2013, 14:22 Kelvin Mureithi

North Imenti MP aspirant on TNA ticket Silas muriuki has cautioned fellow candidates against using hate speech and insulting their opponents during campaigns.

Speaking at Nchiru in Tigania East district of the Meru County, Muriuki said all candidates should be allowed to campaign freely without being intimidated by their opponents.

He expressed concern that many candidates and their supporters had resulted to using hate speech as a way of suppressing their opponents saying the practice is now spreading like bushfire.

Continue living together after elections

He said there is need to campaign peacefully since the candidates will continue living together after elections are over.

A gubernatorial hopeful within the same County Peter Munya also urged those claiming there was a plot to rig elections to stop panicking.

Munya who is also the Assistant Minister for the East African Community said the Interim Independent Electoral Commission (IEBC) was credible and would ensure elections are free and fair saying their claims meant they were in fear of defeat.

He urged Kenyans to remain united and desist from utterances that could lead to chaos.
