The African Divine Church International Archbishop Timothy Musakali has called upon the National Cohesion and Integration Commission NCIC to launch investigations against a number of political leaders affiliated to the Azimio La Umoja Coalition and Kenya Kwanza who are using hate speeches during their campaigns among the measures to curb violence ahead of the August 9th General Elections.

Speaking to West Fm in Namawanga village in Tongaren Constituency, Musakali emphasized on the need for the National Cohesion and Integration Commission NCIC to investigate politicians, their speeches and behavior ahead of the upcoming General Elections and whoever uses hate speech to be prosecuted for threatening peace ahead of August poll.

He was however saddened by a number of politicians affiliated to the two rivaling coalitions who are using harsh words in their campaigns citing that it may threaten peace of the nation even as the country gears towards the General Elections.

The Divine Church International’s Archbishop called upon leaders across the nation to continue embracing peace during their campaigns and have mature politics that may not divide Kenyans based on political parties, coalitions or tribes ahead of the General Election. He however called upon President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto to come together and unite the nation ahead of the General Elections.
