The cohesion body is scheduled to interrogate Wanga on Tuesday after they pushed the date from October 6 to October 10.

“Pursuant to the complaint made against you, the Commission is investigating utterances alleged made by you…Take notice that you are hereby required to appear before the NCIC on October 6 at 10 am so as to assist the commission with the ongoing investigations. Failure to appear is an offence,” said a letter signed by the NCIC CEO Hassan Mohamed.

Ms Wanga’s utterances, that some people termed derogatory, were allegedly made in one of opposition’s political campaigns ahead of the October 26 repeat presidential election.

The Woman Rep is alleged to have made utterances linking President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto to the spread of cholera while making a speech on September 25.
