Kandara MP Alice Wahome has said she will not honour summons by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) over her alleged inciting remarks.

Wahome said she does not understand why the commission is summoning her over remarks she made in Parliament in regard to the chaotic incident where two people were killed in Kenol about three months ago. 

Speaking in Kandara over the weekend, she said NCIC has not made clear what the charges against her are adding the summons is illegal as she made her remarks in parliament where the legislators enjoy the immunity.

Wahome who was supposed to appear before the commission today (Monday) said she has written a letter saying she will not avail herself. 

“I am not being arrogant but I need to clearly understand why I am being summoned and what the charges are,” she said. 

“I have received a two-pages letter with a lot of statements but I would like it simplified and summarised into two or three paragraphs” she remarked. 

Wahome stood her ground that she was not responsible for the skirmishes, which erupted during Deputy President William Ruto’s visit to the region last year. 

“The police through the Directorate Criminal Investigating (DCI) ought to have some a thorough probe into the incident and track down those who were behind the ugly scene,” she said. 

“The two families which lost their kin are yet to know who killed their sons and the answer lies with the police,” she said. 

She said she is reading malice in the move claiming that the commission is being used to intimidate her due to her political stand. 

“Nothing will make me change my stand  on politics because and no amount of intimidation will make me bow down” she added. 

She maintained her ground that the country is heading to the wrong direction and the head of state should do something about it. 

“The unity and economy of this country are being thrown under the bus and things can only get worse,” she said.
