Chiefs must stay for cohesion – NCIC
18 October 2012, 17:27
Nairobi - The government has been urged by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) to retain chiefs in the current administrative structure in a bid to reign in persons who incite ethnic passions, as the country prepares for the March 4, 2013 general elections.
The commissioner in charge of complaints Milly Lwanga told journalists in Nairobi that the role played by chiefs should not be downplayed because they are valuable in implementing the laws at grassroots level, Capital News reports.
Lwanga went on to note that, one of the things they have discovered is that most people who came out to speak to NCIC said that the first point of call is the chief and thus Kenya cannot afford to lose them.
