The Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko has directed the National Cohesion and Integration Commission to commence a speedy inquiry into hate utterances allegedly made by Machakos county Senator Johnstone Muthama.
While confirming receipt of Muthama’s inquiry file from the Director of Criminal Investigations which had recommended that the senator be charged with ethnic contempt, Tobiko forwarded the file to the National Cohesion and Integration Commission under whose mandate the inquiry falls.
In a press statement Tobiko directed the NCIC to immediately interrogate Muthama and conduct speedy investigations tinto the offensive utterances and the resultant inquiry file be forwarded to him for his appropriate action.
Muthama allegedly made offensive utterances in Busia during the homecoming of the county’s women representative Florence Mutua.
The Machakos Senator is also among 8 politicians out on bail having been indicted for hate remarks.
