NCIC summons Korogocho MCA over remarks made at Azimio Kamukunji rally
The National Cohesion and Integration Commission has summoned Korogocho Member of County Assembly Absalom Odhiambo Onyango over alleged incitement made during the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition rally at Kamukunji grounds on Monday 23rd of January.
In a press statement, the commission’s chairman condemned Mr Onyango’s remarks saying they “invoked ethnic hatred while inciting Kenyans to violence”.
“Political development in the last few days is creating unnecessary tension that if not well managed can plunge the country into chaos,” he said.
Dr. Kobia called on leaders to steer clear of such statements in a bid to ensure peace among Kenyans.
“We are calling upon all the leaders to stop actions and rhetoric that can trigger violence. For if unchecked violence started in one place will be repeated in another and before long the whole country will burn. In such event nobody wins and all of us lose,” the statement read.
Kobia further stated that the commission would not allow anyone to undermine the presidency.
“We wish to remind Kenyans that the President who is also the head of state is the symbol of national unity. Consequently any actions that undermine the presidency will not only damage the national cohesion, but will also injure peace and unity among Kenyans. The President should be accorded respect and honour by all and at all times,” he said.
Mr. Onyango is expected to record a statement.
