KENYA: Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has supported President Uhuru's sentiments warning a section of politicians were inciting Kenyans to violence.
Kidero demanded that National Cohesion and Integration Commission chair Francis ole Kaparo be reprimanded for taking little or no action on individuals causing division along ethnic lines.
Kidero is angered by ethnic sentiments by a section of Kikuyu leaders alluding that Nairobi County belonged to them and the governor should come from the community.
"I agree with President Uhuru on ethnic incitement by some politicians. We should embrace diversity of all communities to be an inclusive county and country," Kidero said.
He asked Ole Kaparo to step up vigilance on hate speech as the country nears the 2017 general elections.
"We saw a lot of action and reconciliations during Mzalendo Kibunjia's tenure and we demand more action from Kaparo or he should be relieved of his duties” He added.
Kidero said it would be counterproductive to expect cities and towns to of homogeneous ethnically.
