"In what appears to be the toothless barking of a dog, it seems as if politicians are beating the drums of war yet the commission is only giving statements.
"As an organization, HAKI Africa believes the NCIC has failed to do its work in particular ensuring that politicians adhere to chapter 6 of the constitution of Kenya on integrity,’’ read the press release in part.
This comes as six legislators led by Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria, Suna East’s Junet Mohammed and Machakos senator Johnston Muthama on Tuesday recorded statements with Criminal Investigations Department CID for allegedly making inflammatory remarks.
