NCIC TO PROPOSE AMENDMNET IN LAW,TO BAR WAR MONGERS FROM CONTESTING FOR POLITICAL SEATS.

The national cohesion and integration commissioning[NCIC] is now proposing an amendment in law ahead of the 2022 general election to bar war mongers from contesting.

According to commissioner Wambui Nyutu, NCIC is working closely with other relevant institution to see among them IEBC to ensure that current politicians and aspiring candidates will be subjected to through vetting before they are cleared to contest.

“The current political leaders who have made it a habit of inciting Kenyans with their loose seeking cheap publicity should better know that the law will eventually catch up with them and they only have themselves to blame,” said Nyutu.

Nyutu who was speaking to the press in Garissa on  after a courtesy call to the county commissioner Meru Mwangi regretted that the political class have made it a habit of using the court to get bail and delay justice with the hope of escaping punishment.

“As a commission we have noted with great concern the current trend by our politicians and it is for this reason that we want to do things differently because as it stands the political class think they will use the justice system to get away with the ‘sins’.

The proposal is however likely to face strong resistance from the politicians who will fall victim and given that they are they will one way or another be involved in passing the new laws.

Nyutu however said that they were alive to that fact and instead called on party leaders to whip their members into supporting the amendments which she  said was good for  the country.

“our political leaders because they wiled a lot powers and have a lot of say in how the parties are run should take personal responsibility and reprimand their members as a country we have been there before and have seen what careless utterances can trigger it should never get to that level,” she said.

For his part commissioner Sam Kona said that wananchi have an even greater role to play in ensuring that there is not only peace but by also voting out war mongers and inciters.

“I want to challenge Kenyans to stop this habit of cheering politicians who take to the podium and all they do is to incite them. this culture must change and stop,” he said.

He added: “This utterances may at the face value look like they don’t mean a lot but it a dangerous trend that can make a state plumb into chaos and fail.”.

The two commissioners said that although Garissa has was calm, the border dispute between Garissa and Tana river and Isiolo and Tana river should be resolved because it can result in conflicts as has been witnessed in the past.

The last  one week has seen heightened political temperatures in the country with Kenyans expressing concerns that it was not good for the country ahead of  the 2022 elections.

Kaparet MP Oscar Sudi and his Emuru Dikir MP Johana Ngeno are the latest politicians  to be arrested and charged for incitement.

 The country commissioner hailed Garissa residents for being calm and peaceful. he said the government was on the look for any individual hell bent on bringing division among various clans residing in the county.
