Woman Rep to be grilled over hate speech

Homa Bay woman representative Gladys Wanga is on Tuesday next week expected to face interrogators over hate remarks.

The interrogation at National Cohesion and Integration Commission was initially slotted for October 6 but officials there said the new date is October 10.

“Pursuant to the complaint made against you, the Commission is investigating utterances alleged made by you…Take notice that you are hereby required to appear before the NCIC on October , 6 at 10 am so as to assist the commission with the ongoing investigations. Failure to appear is an offence,” said a letter signed by the Commission secretary Hassan Mohamed.

Ms Wanga’s utterances that some people termed derogatory were allegedly made in one of opposition’s political campaigns ahead of the October 26 presidential election.

The Woman Rep is alleged to have made utterances linking President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto to the spread of cholera while making a speech on September 25.
