The National Cohesion and Integration Commission has indicated its plans to take action against Sirisia MP John Walukhe over an ethnic slur against Jubilee Party secretary-general Raphael Tuju.
In a video that has been circulated on social media, the outspoken lawmaker accused Tuju of bringing conflict in the ruling party “the way people from his community like to do”.
The clip has since caught the attention of NCIC secretary Hassan Mohamed who told the Star that Walukhe violated section 62 of the NCIC Act.
“We will be taking action since that is what is required of us when the law is violated. He should just have attacked Tuju as a person and not include the community he comes from,” Hassan is quoted.
While blasting Tuju, Walukhe claimed he was speaking as the national vice-chair of Jubilee Party. He said Tuju was not appointed to the position of secretary-general to bring conflict in the party.
“I want to warn Tuju that I will deal with him. We will kick him out of the party and ask him to go home to stay with people from his community, who are known for starting problems for this country,” he said.
