NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 13 – Police are investigating remarks made by two Central Kenya MPs on Sunday night following outcry on social media.
The remarks in the Kikuyu dialect were made by Moses Kuria of Gatundu South and Kabete’s Ferdinand Waititu with video clips of the remarks going viral.
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet said they are reviewing the statements and would take action if an offence is disclosed.
“Police are studying the video clips… we take such matters very seriously,” Boinnet told Capital FM News on telephone.
He warned that “we will not spare anyone because the law is very clear.”
Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri is also under investigation for inciting youths in Nakuru “to evict members of a certain community.”
Boinnet has warned leaders against making inflammatory statements that can cause unnecessary tension in the country.
Several MPs – including the Gatundu South legislator are already facing incitement to violence charges recommended by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC).
