Probe Mutahi Ngunyi for incitement, lawyers ask NCIC
In the application, LSK attached the comments from Ngunyi’s twitter account that had been posted on August 21.
“The posts target members of a specific community as lacking individuality and in a state of mental slavery, assertions that are not only false but may very well constitute hate speeches directed at specific members of a community for which I am a member,” said LSK Secretary Apollo Mboya in his application to the NCIC.
Mboya urged NCIC to exercise its mandate to investigate the utterances of Ngunyi, and make the necessary recommendations to the Director of Public Prosecution with a view to bring him to account.
“It is my view that the words uttered by Mutahi Ngunyi are intended to incite feelings of contempt, hatred, hostility, violence and/or discrimination against a community on the basis of ethnicity and therefore committed an offence under Section 62 of the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) Act,” said Mboya.
