Kitui County Governor Charity Ngilu has been summoned by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) over her alleged incitement remarks.

This is after video showing Governor Ngilu allegedly inciting Kitui county youth to burn down all vehicles carrying charcoal went viral on social media. A lorry alleged to have been ferrying charcoal was burned by youth in the area.

Ms Ngilu recorded a statement with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (CID) headquarters and her lawyers have secured court orders barring the police from arresting her over charcoal remarks.

Ngilu, speaking in vernacular, was – in the video – heard saying; “If you see the lorries, burn them and call me.”

Kiambu county transporters on Saturday, February 10 lit bonfires and staged protests at Kwambira area along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway calling for the arrest of the Kitui Governor for what they termed as promoting tribalism.
