In Summary
  • ODM Nakuru branch secretary Hilton Abihola castigated Mr Manyara for trying to incite residents.

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission is investigating former Nakuru Town MP David Manyara over hate speech remarks.

NCIC chairman Francis ole Kaparo on Sunday said that Mr Manyara, who is the Jubilee Party Nakuru chairman, is under investigation over inflammatory statements he made last week during a protest against the Supreme Court ahead of the release of the full judgment on the presidential election petition.

"I ask the public to be patient and wait for the investigations to be concluded. Action will be taken if he is found guilty," Mr Kaparo said.

Angered by the revocation of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory, Mr Manyara said of National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga:

"Let Raila be warned that we are ready for war.

"He has been telling us that he is the only one with the people behind him. We want to tell him that from today the real Kenyans are going to rise up," he was captured in a video as saying.
