Fight your own battles, Speaker tells Jubilee suspected hatemongers

20 June 2016, 15:56 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - Senate Deputy Speaker Kembi Gitura has told Jubilee MPs implicated in hate speech allegations to fight their own battles without seeking assistance from government.

Gitura said it was wrong for MPs Moses Kuria, Kimani Ngunjiri and Ferdnand Waititu to make hatred and incitement remarks because they belong to the ruling coalition.

He warned that if the lawmakers go scot free, it would be interpretted that they had been sent by President Uhuru Kenyatta to make verbal attacks to other leaders.

Speaking over the weekend at his Murang'a County at Mukangu Secondary School during a prize giving ceremony, Gitura called for prosecution of hate speech suspects notwithstanding political affliations or positions.

"Those making inflammatory remarks should not be tolerated because they will make Kenya burn. They should be imprisoned for purposes of national cohesion," said the Senator.

He urged elected leaders to preach peace and respect each other to avoid tribal clashes.

"We have freedom of speech and expression, but be reminded that such freedom ends at the point where the rights of other people are infringed," Gitura said.

"Each of us young and old have a stake in our great country and we must protect it from those who would want to destroy it for short term gain and selfish needs," he added
