Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji has directed Inspector General of police Hillary Mutyambai to commence investigations into the utterances made by Senator Mithika Linturi in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County.
According to DPP Noordin Haji, the utterances by Senator Linturi could be investigated for hate speech and incitement.
DPP Noordin Haji wrote, “My attention has been drawn to a video clip circulating on social platforms portraying Mithika Linturi allegedly addressing a crowd and stating that [watu wa Uasin Gishu msicheze na wakenya. Nawaomba kwamba madoadoa mliyo nayo hapa muweze kuondoa…], which utterances could incite feelings of contempt, hatred, hostility, violence, or discrimination.”
IG Mutyambai is required to submit a report in six days.
Linturi was captured on camera asking Eldoret residents during a Deputy President William Ruto rally to remove ‘Madoadoa’ or ‘Spots’ who do not support DP Ruto.
Linturi said, “Nawaomba kwamba madoadoa mliyo nayo hapa muweze kuondoa. [I urge you to do away with ‘madoadoa’ in your midst].”
Later, talking to The Standard on the phone, Linturi clarified his statement saying, “I am just saying if we are supporting DP Ruto from Meru and the Mt Kenya region, then the likes of MPs Kutuny. Kamar, and Mishra should not be re-elected.”
