Trouble Looming for Sen Linturi as The DPP Open Investigations on Alleged Hate Speech & Incitement

"Watu wa Uasin Gishu msicheze na Kenya. Nawaomba muondoe madoadoa ambayo mko nayo. Hatuwezi kuwa tunasimama na William kule Mt. Kenya na Meru halafu mko na wengine hapa ambao hawaungani naye." Senator Linturi surprisingly stated during today's meeting in Eldoret.

The utterance of Senator Linturi opened a debate among Kenyans and other leaders who accused him of hate speech and openly trying to cause some division in the country.

According to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), a directive has been sent out to investigate the Senator over his sentiment that has been termed as hate speech and incitement note.

"The DPP has directed that comprehensive investigations be undertaken expeditiously on utterances made by Hon. Mithika Linturi. We wish to inform members of public that persons found culpable of hate speech and incitement will be prosecuted.

#HakiNaUsawa #NoToHateSpeech." The office of the Director of Public Prosecution confirmed.

Should any action be taken on the legislature?
