There is no time and energy left for further negativity, NCIC hits out at hate speech mongers
The National Cohesion and Integration Commission through its chairman Dr. Samuel Kobia emphasised its observation of the 2022 general election. The commission affirmed the findings in its report stating the general election was the most peaceful compared to previous elections.
The commission expressed its gratitude to Kenyans who accepted the results and have moved on with their daily lives.
“We are all aware of the tough economic times coupled with prolonged droughts that have led to the loss of livelihood as well as property in many parts of the country. Certainly, there is no time and energy left for further negativity since Kenyans are demanding a conducive environment to allow them to rebuild their livelihoods. Disrupting peace and cohesion will derail the positive gains that we have achieved as a country,” noted the chairman.
Speaking on behalf of the commission, Kobia highlighted it was disturbing to note that there is a re-emergence of political incitement and hate speech by some of the political leaders. A statement seemingly hitting out at Azimio allies who have recently been held on incitement allegations.
“For instance, the Commission through the social media investigation team flagged 10 hate speech and 20 misinformation cases as compared to three cases in November and December 2022. This is an indication that hate speech and ethnic contempt is as a result of the recent political rallies,” said the commission on the re-emergence of political incitement.
The NCIC together with other law enforcement agencies says it will closely monitor to ensure Kenyans are not divided along ethnic line and political beliefs.
