Bloggers put on notice over hate speech

According to Daily Nation, a media monitoring team has accused bloggers of spreading hate messages especially on major media websites and vowed a crackdown.
The team says since the messages and vitriolic exchanges that have taken an ethnic turn are communicated on popular media websites, it reaches thousands of internet users and may excite passions ahead of the General Election, two months away.
The secretary of the National Steering Committee on Media Monitoring Mary Ombara said Wednesday some of the messages posted on the blogs bordered on hate speech and called on the ‘major media houses’ to exercise some form of control to ensure vitriol did not filter into their blogs.
