Public Debate on Governance and National Cohesion
The Commission continues to play an instrumental role in the fight against hate speech and incitement to violence. In recognition of its mandate, the Commission was invited to participate in a public forum organised by the Leadership Report on Saturday 10th September, 2016 at Baba Dogo Catholic Church.
The event dubbed “Importance of Governance towards bringing about Cohesion in our Country” brought together community members, religious leaders and politicians from Baba Dogo, Nairobi.
Some of the issues that were identified included the need for the Commission to increase its efforts for social media monitoring and focus more on preventive measures and not only on reactive measures of curbing hate speech and incitement by politicians.
