Sirisia MP John Waluke in Trouble Over Ethnic Slur Against Tuju

Sirisia MP John Waluke is on the spot over an ethnic slur against Jubilee Party secretary general Raphael Tuju.

A video widely circulated on social media appears to show the outspoken MP, a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto attacking Tuju and his ethnic community.

The clip has attracted the attention of the National Cohesion and Integration Commission which is now preparing to summon Waluke for grilling.

Commission secretary Hassan Mohamed told the Star that the legislator violated section 62 of the NCIC Act.

“Any person who utters words intended to incite feelings of contempt, hatred, hostility, violence or discrimination against any person, group or community on the basis of ethnicity or race, commits an offence,” section 62 (1) of the act reads in part.

Offenders are liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding one million shillings, or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years, or both.
