On Friday, NCIC announced that words like ‘Sipangwingiwi, Linda Kura and Kama mbaya mbaya’ are incitement and hate speech hence banned in the country. Further, the commission stated that any politician uttering the words will be arrested.
The ban came hours before Ruto’s new song with musician Exray was released dubbed ‘Sipangwingwi’.
Following the ban, leaders allied to Ruto hit out at President Uhuru and the NCIC stating that this was just another witch hunt on their growing influence in the country.
Bonny Khalwale on Saturday, sent Uhuru a message uttering the banned word ‘sipangwingwi’ stating that it was no way related to incitement or hate speech.
The former senator further urged the agency to arrest him as he will continue uttering the words when he deems them necessary.
