Kenya 'hate leaflets' discovered

1 post in this topic

Kenyan police have found leaflets inciting violence being distributed in some areas with less than two weeks to go to general elections.

The police chief said they were intended to spread "fear and panic".

They have been circulating in Kimusu, home to Prime Minister and presidential contender Raila Odinga, and the coastal city of Mombasa.

Following post-election violence five years go, the authorities have been trying to crack down on hate speech.

Hate leaflets, as they are called, were widely distributed after the disputed December 2007 elections. More than 1,000 people were killed in the six weeks of unrest which also forced some 300,000 people from their homes.
