NCIC warns politicians against inciting locals into violence in Ol-Pusimoru,Narok

The National cohesion and integration commission-NCIC has warned politicians against inciting members of the public into violence in Ol-Pusimoru area of Narok County that the law will face up with them.

NCIC chief executive officer Hassan Mohammed issued the warning in Nakuru on Thursday saying that a cessation notice has already been issued to Narok Senator Ledama ole Kina over remarks he made on 25th September 2018.

The remarks according to NCIC have the potential to cause animosity between the Maasai and Kipsigis communities.

“Leaders in Narok, Nakuru, Bomet and Kericho counties are under close watch of NCIC and other agencies and no one will be spared if found to be inciting members of the public” he said.

He added that should any leaders issued with a warning persist to do the mistake, the commission will have no alternative but to involve agencies like the office of the DPP and DCi in order to have they prosecuted.

He described the situation in the area as porous and as such there was need to ensure that communities living in the area live peacefully and harmoniously.

And because evictions in the Mau forest have to continue, the CEO said that leaders should result to talking to their people so that the co-operate with the government instead of provoking the government to use force.

He said that with dialogue the government could even decide to compensate or find alternative land for the evictees.

He spoke in Nakuru on Thursday during a one day workshop to evaluate the 2017 general election and the effects it brought to the community in as far as peace and cohesion is concerned.
