Khalwale summoned over alleged hate speech

25 January 2015, 10:36 William Korir

Nairobi - Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale has been summoned over alleged hate speech.

The outspoken Senator has landed in hot water over comments he made during the funeral of CORD leader Raila Odinga's son Fidel, where he intimated that the government has not favoured  members of the Luhya community in terms of jobs and instead handed the better jobs to the Kikuyu and Kalenjin communities of president Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.

Khalwale confirmed to News24 that he had indeed been summoned.

" I have been summoned and have been ordered to appear before the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission EACC on Monday," he said.

Whether he will commit to the summon is a different story and the Kakamega legislator said he would consider his options and decide on whether to go or not.

" I have not decided. I want them to tell me first what is wrong with my statement before I go. But we will see," he added.

Khalwale follows in the footsteps of Gatundu South legislator Moses Kuria in being summoned to answer to charges of hate speech.
