UHURU WARNS KURIA AGAINST HATE SPEECH
Speaking at a public function on Friday, President Kenyatta urged the politicians to instead concentrate on their core responsibilities of nation building initiating development projects.
“If you are a member of Parliament, what your electorate expects from you is to cater for their interests and spread development, you have CDF (Constituency Development Fund), use it appropriately instead of inciting Kenyans here and there,” the President said.
Kenyatta’s comments comes in the wake of controversial comments by Gatundu South Constituency Member or Parliament Moses Kuria.
The controversial politician is said to have uttered the following words at a public forum mostly consisting youths:
“That is why I asked you to come with our pangas. And those pangas are not for clearing bushes. Use them to slash those opposed to the NYS project.”
The video of Kuria’s sentiments later went viral on social media causing public outrage.
The Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko, National Cohesion and Integration Commission, alongside the National Alliance Party (TNA), are amongst the institutions that have since taken up this matter for investigations.
