3 accused of hatespeech

25 October 2011, 16:19

Nairobi - According to reports by the Daily Nation, Kuria MP Wilfred Machage, his Mt Elgon colleague Fred Kapondi and businesswoman Christine Nyagitha Miller have a case to answer on hate speech over comments they made during the 2010 referendum campaigns.

Machage is facing four counts of incitement and uttering hate speech as he is accused of saying the words "WaMaasai chenu hakiko Rift Valley, mashamba yenu yote yataenda kwa serikali." (You the Maasai, all your land in Rift Valley will be repossessed by the government).

Meanwhile Kapondi is said to have uttered the words in Kiswahili: "As you all know, Trans Nzoia is ours yet they claim it is metropolitan. Likewise to Bungoma you can tell even by the name, we inform them that with the passage of the proposed constitution, they must pack up and go."

The third accused Nyagitha, widow of former Chief Justice Cecil Miller, is accused of saying in Kiswahili "Why hasn't the 'Yes' camp visited Central (province)? It is because they know at Githunguri we will pelt them with stones and tell them this is a 'No' zone."
