Social media hatred, incitement will burn Kenya says MP

21 January 2015, 20:40

Nairobi - Kuresoi South Member of Parliament Zakayo Cheruiyot has said that social media incitement and hatred will burn this country if it is not tamed as early as this.

Speaking at a Nakuru hotel Wednesday afternoon, Cheruiyot said that the kind of tribal hatred and incitements being portrayed on social media platforms has the capability of plunging this country into a hole that will be hard to come out of.

Cheruiyot said that the National Cohesion and integration commission must stamp its authority by prosecuting those leading the spread of hatred messages on social media platforms.

He said that leaders spreading hate messages and propaganda on social media should be held liable so that they can serve as an example to the ordinary Kenyans.

“It is saddening to see that social media platforms have been turned into battle fields for hate mongers where they post inciting messages against tribes and this if not checked will sent this country to the dogs. It is even sad that elected leaders are the ones leading the posting of such messages and no action is being taken against them,’

“Kaparo and NCIC must do their work and stop such leaders from sending this nation the wrong way. If one senior politician can be sent to prison then it will sever as an example to others who are working hard to divide this nation,” said Cheruiyot.

Cheruiyot said that hate mongers should be punished regardless of their standing or position in the society or within government.
