No hate-mon­gers will be spared, says Keny­atta

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

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.
