Jubilee MP says hatemongers should be jailed

17 June 2016, 19:10 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Kieni MP Kanini Kega has called for successful prosecution of hatemongers to avert tribal wars in the country.

Kega said political leaders who cause alarm and spread hate speech should be taken behind bars so that communities can integrate.

Speaking during an education day for Chinga Boys High School in Othaya, the MP said some leaders are dividing Kenyans on tribal lines to win political support.

“Hate speech will lead to national crisis and we would desist from the path of war. Nobody should die because of a politician because there are numerous avenues of solving issues,” said Kega.

He asked Judiciary, National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) and Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to ensure those accused of incitement and preaching hatred are jailed.

Kega further supported President Uhuru Kenyatta’s remarks that there would be no special treatment in war against hate speech.

The President warned that he would not allow Kenyans to be divided along tribal lines and that those seeking to do so ahead of the 2017 general election would and should face the full force of the law.

He was reacting to the detention of three of his party legislators in an ongoing hate speech probe and demands by Opposition leader Raila Odinga that five opposition MPs held on similar claims should be released.
