National Commision and Intergration Commision(NCIC) has petitioned the Church to help fight hate speech. – By Enock Mukoma
NCIC Chairman, Rev. Dr. Samuel Kobia said political temperatures are on the rise, and appealed to the religious community to intervene.
“We appeal to the top leadership of main political parties in the country to show visible and positive leadership. We must cultivate the culture of non-violence, respect the rule of law and have tolerance for divergent opinions.” said Rev. Dr. Samuel Kobia
He condemned the recent violence in Muranga during which two people lost their lives and said decisive action will be taken against the purveyors of hate speech.
“We are going to engage leadership and young people concerning the Murang’a violence. We are aware that Kenyans are glappling with COVID-19 and now is not the time to engage in divisive politics.” He added.
He was speaking at the Commission’s offices at the KMA Centre in Upper Hill.
