No hate-mongers will be spared, says Kenyatta
President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned politicians who engage in hate speech and incitement that they will face stern punishment.
He said on Wednesday night that any politician, whether from Jubilee or the opposition, who breaks the law will face the full force of the law as the general election approaches — and afterward.
Uhuru issued the warning as he urged Kenyans to remain united and work in harmony for the sake of development.
“Politicians should not think they are untouchable. If you go out there and incite Kenyans, we will take action against you. When action is taken against you, do not complain that t is politics,” he said.
Uhuru made the comments when he joined religious leaders from Elgeyo Marakwet for a fundraiser at the Laico Regency Hotel, Nairobi.
The fundraiser was organised by the ELMA Mtumishi Sacco, whose members are county religious leaders.
