Kuria says sorry

12 January 2015, 17:40 William Korir

Nairobi - Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has said sorry for hate speech claims that have been leveled against him.

Kuria had been asked by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission NCIC to apologize publicly over hate speech charges he had picked up last year on social media.

The NCIC had asked Kuria to apologize on a public forum, as well as have an apology printed on national newspapers or mediums so as to let his charges against hate speech slip.

And Kuria did not waste time to apologize for his mistakes, doing so right outside the NCIC headquarters in Nairobi.

" I am sorry. I admit I made a mistake. I know that I went out of line and even said insulting things towards certain communities. I am sorry," he said.

Kuria also asked other leaders not to spread hate messages in public forums.

" I ask other leaders to observe caution whenever they talk in public forums and ensure they preach peace and ask Kenyans to live together with each other. If Moses Kuria stops and another leader speaks in that manner, then we will not go anywhere, he said.

He will also place a signed apology in all major newspapers.
The Gatundu MP has been in court over accusations he made on social media site Facebook which amounted to hate speech and was initially taken to court by the Law Society of Kenya and later by the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
