IEBC threatens to ban hate speech politicians from 2017 elections

06 January 2016, 15:24 William Korir

Nairobi - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC has threatened to bar hate speech politicians from the 2017 General Elections.

Chairman Isack Hassan said Wednesday that it was unfortunate politicians and leaders are using their elevated positions to spread hate speech.

He called on leaders who have been coming up with inflammatory statements to desist from doing so unless they are seeking to be barred come the elections.

He was reacting to the statements by Mombasa politician Suleiman Shabhal who stated that the Jubilee Coalition will rig the 2017 elections by force.

"The commission is committed to delivering free, fair and credible elections in 2017 and beyond. We urge all stakeholders to play their part to ensure this is realised," he said.

Hassan noted that the remarks violated sections 62, 63 and 64 of the Elections Act and undermined national values enshrined in the constitution.

"The Act is clear with respect to electoral offences of treating of voters, undue influence, duress, intimidation and bribery," he said.

"We support the initiative taken by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP to investigate the conduct of Shahbal," he added and urged politicians to exercise restraint while preparing for the elections.

Shabhal has already been ordered investigated by the office of the DPP.
