NCIC Finally Breaks Silence And Responds To Ruto's Leaked Audio On Threat To Slap Uhuru

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission has for the first time spoken following the ongoing debate of leaked audio of the Deputy President William Ruto threatening to slap his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to the NCIC, the leaked audio did not amount to hate speech or incitement as it was being alleged by different political players across the country.

The recorded audio has the Deputy President William Ruto claiming that he nearly slapped President Uhuru Kenyatta prior to the repeat of the 2017 general elections.

The Azimio team have been playing the audio during their rallies but according to NCIC commissioner Sam Kona, the video lacked the threshold warranting investigation.

He assured that the National Cohesion and Integration Commission would have acted if proven that the audio could cause bodily harm or animosity.

Mr Kona further warned that they had deployed a multi-agency team to monitor political events and warned politicians from making speeches that border on hate speech.
