Nairobi - Daily Nation reports a report by National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) shows that stereotypes and coded language are being used highly ahead of the March polls.
According to a study released on Thursday, the cohesion body found that ethnic groups use code names to identify others and that while some are used positively; others are negative and generate "outright contempt".
NCIC vice chairperson Milly Lwanga said they commissioned the study because of the realisation that the work they started three-and-a-half years ago of trying to highlight to Kenyans the danger of hate speech is now threatened by coded language and stereotypes.
