Chiefs ordered to crack down on hate speech
By Kevine Omollo and Dalton Nyabundi | January 26th 2017
Chiefs and their assistants have been directed to monitor hate speech as the national government moves to ensure peaceful elections.
"The administrators will be required to attend political rallies and give regular reports on cases of violence and hate speech," Regional Co-ordinator Wilson Njenga said on Wednesday.
Mr Njenga asked locals to report anyone planning violence to the police. The directive came as a group of youths was reportedly mounting illegal roadblocks and harassing residents who did not have voters' cards.
Njenga said those found erecting barriers would be arrested and charged.
