Kenyan Daily Post blog risks closure over incitement

01 May 2014, 09:02 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - National Steering Committee on Media Monitoring has sought the closure of The Kenyan Daily Post blog for fanning ethnic hatred and incitement.

The Committee’s Chairperson, Mary Ombara said the blog has widely been politicizing the National Security Operations and giving innuendos of a blood bath.

Ombara looked intensively into the blog’s underground persistent spreading of negative ethnicity being perpetrated by politicians and asserted that the reporting can no longer be tolerated.

“The government has intensified National Security operations and the campaign against hate speech and incitement in the country,” said Ombara.

“The blog published messages such as ‘Kenya needs to die to be reborn’ purports ethnic profiling operations and a biased media campaign against communities,” she added.

Ombara urged the public to actively engage constructive and national unification ideas and report those propagating tribal messages to National Counter Terrorism Centre.

She urged the public to reach the National Cohesion and Integration Commission’s on Toll Free Text Line of 15666 which she noted is fully operational across the country in dealing with incitement and hate speech cases.

Ombara also said they have forwarded digital material evidence to the Secretariat of the National Integration and Cohesion Commission on two politicians and a lawyer for further action.

“We recommend serious investigations on the three on their persistent hate speech and incitement as the three have a communal clout and a hard and unapologetic stance continues to escalate tension in the country,” she stated

Ombara was speaking at a weekly media briefing on emerging surveys in their media monitoring task.
