The term elimination is now out of use in the political arena as the country prepares to go to polls in August.

Other statements that have been blacklisted include kill, fumigation among other words.

Slang statements have also been prohibited including operation Linda Kura, kama mbaya mbaya among politicians and their supporters.

Ethnic profiling has also been outlawed and considered as a threat to national unity.

Henceforth, demeaning terms in local dialects will attract punitive measures including a jail term.

The commission has affirmed that anybody who will use phrases like cockroach or mende in Kikuyu, kihii, uthamaki ni witu in Meru, mwiji to mean uncircumcised man in Kalenjin, to to mean people with brown teeth, otutu meaning uproot the weed, ngetiik among others will face the law.

Speaking in Nairobi, the commission's chairman Dr Samuel Kobia said the decision to take action has been made in order to prevent blood shed in the country and promote peace.

Hatupangwingwi which is always used in DP Ruto campaigns has also been declared illegal, however, tibim and tialala which which are popular in Azimio have not been banned.
