Kenyans using coded language ahead of polls, NCIC

07 February 2013, 15:20

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.

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.
