Haji approves prosecution of Ng’eno over inciteful remarks


The Director of Public Prosecution has given the approval for the prosecution of Emurua Dikir MP Johana Ng’eno over alleged incitement.

DPP Nordin Haji has stated that Ng’eno’s Saturday remarks at a public gathering were likely to stir up up ethnic animosity amongst communities residing within Trans Mara area.

“The conduct of the MP was offensive and was intended and was likely to provoke a breach of peace within Trans Mara area,” said Haji in a statement.

Haji has further directed that criminal charges be preferred against Ng’eno for hate speech contrary to section 13 of the National Cohesion and Integration Act 2008.

“The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions takes note of the increasingly toxic cocktail of ethnically bigoted rhetoric from political leaders aimed at balkanizing the country, inflaming passions and sowing seeds of division and destruction. This will not be tolerated,” he further stated.

Haji has also stated that stern action will be taken against all persons inciting Kenyans adding that they will face the law regardless of their social standing.

He has also advised Kenyans to report anyone in breach of the peaceful co-existence.
