NCIC urged to investigate Kajiado Gubernatorial aspirant David Kedienye over alleged incitement remarks

by Robert Guyana

The law firm of Musyoki Mogaka & Company advocates has written a letter to the National Cohesion and Integration Commission requesting them to investigate former Kajiado Governor David and his running mate Joseph Manje over alleged incitement remarks. 

The firm which acted under the instructions of its client Ednah Kerubo says the remarks made by the two in one of the campaigns in Kiserian Kajiado County on April,2022 was intended to Ethnically discriminate all other communities living in Kajiado preference to Kikuyu and Maasai.

“The said remarks made in public,which singled out the Maasai being the dominant community and Kikuyus to the exclusion of other tribes implicitly offends Artcle 27(4)of the constitution ,2010 that demands inclusivity of all persons without discrimination on grounds of ethnic origin,”says lawyer Danstan Omari acting for Kerubo.

Edna who was questioned by DCI on the same issue yesterday told reporters outside the Kitengela police station that she was summoned over a press statement they had issued together with other residents over remarks made by Kedienye and Manje during a political campaign at Kiserian town

She said Kedienye singled out Maasais and Kikuyus as the main tribes in Kajiado excluding other several ethnic groups and foreigners who live in Kajiado. She said that Aspirants’ statements were dangerous and meant to cause ethnic hatred in Kajiado.

Further her lawyer Danstan Omari pointed out that political statements issued by Aspirants with ethnic profiling were delicate considering what happened in the country in the year 2007.
