Nairobi, KENYA: Cord has condemned the government in a manner which it handled arrests of Mps allied to the coalition.

This comes after the National Cohesion and Intergration Commision and Directorate of Criminal Investigations bosses warned leaders over hate speech insisting that all six mps culpable of the vice must face the law.

Speaking outside DCI headquarters on Tuesday in Nairobi CORD co principal Kalonzo Musyoka accused the government of violating CORD Mps rights through house arrests and violent arrests executed towards other legislators .

“Police going to bar leaders in their homes is a violation of their fundamental rights ,this trend is meant to bring some divisions among us .” Kalonzo said

He urged the government to deal with people whose aim is to divide Kenyans, insisting that tribalism has become a menace which has to be dealt with head on with the top leadership.

This comes as Suna East MP Junet Mohamed was dramatically arrested outside Nation center early Tuesday morning.

Separately in a media briefing early Tuesday NCIC chair Francis Ole Kaparo and DCI Director Ndegwa warned leaders who are uttering hate speeches that the government will take stern action against them.

“If you make hate speech which will cause instability of this country we will come for you regardress of your position .”Muhoro said

He said that the trend of incitement and hate speech among leaders is on the rise and the government has a responsibility to take action against them warning that it is a dangerous path for the country.
