National Cohesion and Integration Commission has summoned Kandara MP Alice Wahome over hateful remarks she uttered last year.

The lawmaker was asked to present herself before NCIC offices over what the commission termed as hateful remarks made in October last year during the infamous violence that broke out during DP William Ruto’s visit to Kenol, Murang’a County.

Rival youths clashed on the said day that left two dead and several injured.

The clashes happened before the arrival of DP Ruto at AIPCA church in Kenol.

When the incident happened, Wahome and her Kiharu counterpart Ndindi Nyoro had been blamed for allegedly orchestrating the chaos.

The commission says Wahome went on a “hateful tirade” blaming senior government officials for the incident.

Wahome also said the youth were paid off and hinted at possible collusion with top offices in government and the police.

“The security forces were part of the plan to attack the AIPCA church, I have no doubt. I state with confidence that the security and even the Inspector General were aware and if they were not, then the interior Cabinet Secretary was well aware,” part of Wahome’s quote from the statement released by NCIC.

She further attacked President Uhuru Kenyatta and according to the commission her remarks were hateful and disruptive.

The commission has said that if the legislator fails to appear in person before them, they would institute contempt proceedings against her.

The legislator is yet to comment over the summon.

She’s one of Ruto’s greatest defender from Central region which is President Uhuru Kenyatta’s turf.

The county senator Irungu Kangata and Women representative Sabina Chege have always been pro-Uhuru.

Political pundits believe Kangata’s BBI letter to the President could be the beginning of his woes after the head of state publicly rubbished it at the burial of ANC party boss Musalia Mudavadi’s mother.
