Raila falls into Kuria’s hate speech trap

10 July 2015, 10:14 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga could be charged for propagating hate speech by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC).

Raila could be charged alongside other political leaders who angrily responded to Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria’s hateful remarks against those opposed to the National Youth Service projects.

“We will press charges against all the MPs who angrily responded to Moses Kuria’s hateful remarks, including the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga,” NCIC Chairman, Francis Ole Kaparo said.

Kaparo said many Kenyans see Raila as a national leader who has a major role to play in uniting the people of this nation and preaching peace.

“The former PM, President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto should be my allies in bringing this country together,” he said.

Kaparo has written to Chief Justice, Will Mutunga to handle the matter with speed to stop hatred in Kenya.

“All these cases delay in courts forever making it hard for NCIC to deliver its mandate properly. I have written to the Chief Justice over the matter.

“I have also written to the Secretary Generals of all political parties in Kenya telling them to warn their members against propagating hate speech,” Kaparo said.

Meanwhile, Parliament’s Minority Leader, Jakoyo Midiwo has apologized to Kenyans on behalf of all MPs.

Midiwo said Kuria’s remarks were unacceptable and he should face the full force of law.

“Kuria belongs to jail. This is not the way a leader should conduct himself,” Midiwo said.
