The National Cohesion and Integration Commission wants people to stop using coded language to refer to people from certain communities. Vice Chairperson Millie Lwanga says these names are extremely offensive and dehumanizing and are creating ethnic hatred among people.
This announcement comes after NCIC chairman Mzalendo Kibunjia on Monday cautioned leaders not to incite Kenyans on the basis of historical injustices.
"We must not accept leaders who incite us on the basis of historical injustices that we have agreed as a nation and even formed institutions to resolve them." Kibunjia said. Inspector General of Police David Kimayo issued a similar warning on Tuesday asking leaders to refrain from talking about land.
