Tana Delta Sub-County Deputy County Commissioner John Kipsiwa has warned politicians against using the youths to propagate hate speech on social media during the campaign.
“Young people should not be misused, there are those people who use social media to spread rumours and hatred, know that you are being investigated. Social media should not be misused, we should use it well to spread our agenda but we should not use it to insult others,’’ said the DCC.
He urged the residents of Tana Delta not to be used to cause violence by politicians saying the government will take stern actions against purveyors of hate speech.
DCC Kipsiwa said, “We ask that we stay in peace and continue with our activities that we are doing at home so that after the election we can all come back together and build our sub-county”.
The DCC was speaking in the Chira location when he unveiled a chief office built by the Garsen constituency CDF. He urged chiefs to give services to the citizenry.
The DCC extolled Garsen MP, Ali Wario for building chiefs offices through CDF. Chira location residents were encouraged to support the chief and other government employees who are implementing the government development agenda.
Speaking at the same event the DCC also implored parents to take their children to school.
He said many families are still using their children to herd livestock while they are supposed to be in classrooms. “If you want livestock to be grazed, hire someone or yourself to graze them if you cannot sell the livestock. Children should be sent to school, especially girls”.
