Video-Government asks Omar Hassan to resign

The government has asked Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) Commissioner Hassan Omar Hassan to resign as a row over allegations of hate speech picked up speed on Thursday.

Government spokesman Alfred Mutua said Omar had contravened the expectations of promoting peace in the country and chosen divisive utterances along ethnic lines.

He added that Omar should not continue serving in his position as he has already tainted his representation of tolerance.
