Following the recent passing of the controversial security bill into law, the media landscape in the country is seeing a fast change. People are moving from talking recklessly on social media to a more cool approach to certain subjects. However, some have chosen to retain their old ways of rather insightful public speeches or posts on social media.
On January 12th, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria took to the public to clean his image, having linked some communities to terrorism and violence. He said that he’s now committed to stopping the hate speech between politicians. The sitting was chaired by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission and the Law Society of Kenya.
“Let us not burn this country using 40 words though a ceasefire cannot be unilateral,” he told the press. “That is not to say that when other leaders attack the government, I will be quiet. Every action attracts a reaction. I expect the same from these politicians,” he added.
