MPs warned against hate speech during their short break

10 July 2015, 08:09 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi has cautioned MPs against making inciting remarks as the House break for a 10-day recess.

Muturi said the legislators should be watchful when addressing their constituents to ensure they don’t propagate hate speech and incitement that might fuel ethnic divisions and violence.

“Honorable Members, as leaders and people’s representatives we should be mindful of our utterances not to make remarks that would split our people and rise violence temperatures,” warned Muturi.

Muturi added that the legislators should be advocates of preaching peace and unity across all ethnic lines since the country is not yet healed from the 2007/2008 post-election clashes sparked by incitement and hate speech utterances from leaders.

National Assembly Deputy Minority Leader, Jakoyo Midiwo who raised the hate speech and incitement matter seeking the House to debate into the unbecoming conduct of Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, said his offensive utterances had raised tension across the country.

“I have received calls from Eldoret, Kisumu and other regions of this country people complaining that Moses Kuria’s incitement remarks to his constituents for them to cut those opposed to the National Youth Service projects with pangas (machetes) was causing tension among communities,” said Midiwo.

He said Kuria’s vulgar remarks were a threat to peaceful coexistence in the nation and unity among communities that are now recovering from the post-election violence.

“I plead with my fellow colleagues to be keen on what they utter not to split communities while we are out there during our short break,” said Midiwo.

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) chairman, Francis ole Kaparo on Wednesday wrote to the offices of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Inspector General of Police and the Criminal Investigations Department asking them to launch immediate investigations and prosecution of Kuria.
