Kenya: Education Cabinet Secretary directs offending remarks to female Muslim journalist

Muslim leaders now want the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) to take action against Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha over Al Shabaab remarks he directed to a female journalist during a press conference.

During the event the female Muslim reporter who was covered in hijab posed a question to the CS who instead of answering demanded to know where she came from and whether she was representing the Al Shabaab.

The Muslim Council of Kenya termed this as religious profiling saying Magoha’s sentiments undermine the freedom of religion as enshrined in the constitution.

While also urging the Media Council of Kenya (MCK) to follow up on the matter, the Muslim leaders want President Uhuru Kenyatta to end the employment of the Education CS for what they term reckless statements.
