A group of civil society organisations want the National Cohesion and Integration Commission ( NCIC) disbanded for being a drain on taxpayersâ money.
The five civil society organisations maintained that the Mzalendo Kibunjia led commission has failed in its mandate and instead is aggravating ethnic tensions in the country.
Led by Organisation for National Empowerment Director Benji Ndolo, The Rights Activist issued a 30-day ultimatum to the commissioners to vacate or they would camp at their offices to demand for their exit.
"The truth is that this country has become more tribal than it was before the 2007 General Elections. The question that must be asked is, what has NCIC achieved so far and are we as a nation on the way to cohesion?" posed Ndolo.
Speaking to the press on Friday in a Nairobi Hotel, the Activist accused the Commission of being mum on political leaders whom they claimed are dividing the country along ethnic lines.
They said Kibunjia is handling the political leaders with âkid glovesâ arguing that he remained tight lipped after the GEMA and KAMATUSA meetings.
National Chairman Super Ethnic Rights Forum Sheikh Ahmadi faulted Kibunjia for sensationally claiming that there was tension in Nyanza.
Kibunjia had on Tuesday claimed that there was tension in Kisumu between the Luos and Kisiis following assassination claims against Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
"The reports we are getting are that indeed there are no tensions in the region. Is this an admission of failure? What Kibunjia is doing is to polarise the country himself," said Ahmadi.
