"The NCIC has been lethargic and carefree at best. This is a commission best known for organizing workshops at top hotels with nothing to show for it. The commission should by now have arrested an emerging pattern where politicians of certain political earnings have been using words that can be construed as intended to incite Kenyans. The IEBC need to come out in force and say in no uncertain terms will it allow politicians inciting Kenyans to contest in the elections. UDA has been committed to peaceful campaigns and has gone out of its way to warn its aspirants of being disqualified if they engage in violence; this is what we expect from all other political and non-political players in the country participating in next year's elections," he wrote.
