KENYA: The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) has cautioned politicians against discussing historical injustices as the campaigns heat up.
Such statements are tantamount to incitement, said the commission’s chair Mzalendo Kibunja.
Instead, NCIC has told them to allow the Truth Justice and reconciliation commission to execute their mandate.
The commission’s warning comes amid calls for greater caution in utterances as Kenya heads to the polls.
Last week, the Land Development and Governance Institute (LDGI) Executive Director Mwenda Makathimo cautioned politicians against spreading falsehoods or create misery on account of land issues.He explained that such talks are likely to polarise voters, as land is a sensitive matter.
With some blaming the nominations chaos on erroneous information disseminated on social media, IEBC has also expressed concerns about communications on the digital platform.
