23 February 2016, 17:23
Nakuru - The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) chairman, Francis Ole Kaparo has accused the Judiciary of frustrating his efforts of fighting against tribal hatred in the country.
Kaparo accused the Judiciary of being lenient with hate speech offenders, something he said is hurting the war against ethnicity and tribal hatred.
He said that the Judiciary has been taking too long to handle cases related to hate speech and thus encouraging politicians to continue engaging in hate speech.

He added that the Judiciary has been bailing out offenders and dragging their cases.
"Politicians have the guts to move around openly inciting Kenyans because they know even if we take them to court they will be set free," he said.
Kaparo spoke in Nakuru town Tuesday after meeting elders from the border of Nakuru and Narok.
