Khalwale vows to snub NCIC summons over alleged hate speech remarks

27 January 2015, 12:14 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Kakamega Senator, Boni Khalwale has vowed not to honour summons to appear before the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) over hate speech comments he allegedly made in Bondo during the burial of Raila’s son, Fidel Odinga.

The vocal Senator was last week ordered to appear before the Francis Ole Kaparo led NCIC and record a statement over what is said to be inflammatory statements he made during the funeral that was attended by thousands and people, which was also broadcast live on national televisions.

Khalwale during the funeral hit out at the Jubilee government over what he claimed was skewed appointments which he observed favoured only people from President Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto’s ethnic communities.

Speaking to journalists in Kakamega, Khalwale said he will snub the summons because he believes he did not in any way make any outrageous demand and his sentiments were nothing but the truth.

“I was required to record a statement this week with the NCIC over alleged inciting remarks I am told I made in Bondo. I will never appear before the commission because I only made a fair comment on tribal appointments, which has seen other qualified Kenyans locked out from accessing employment in Government based on the communities they hail from,” said Khalwale.

“I repeat, I will not appear before the NCIC. I want to categorically state that I will not be intimidated by this Jubilee government of Uhuru Kenyatta which is working very hard to silence its vocal critics,” he added, noting that the country is slowing slipping back to the dark days where critics were silenced.
