He noted that the comments made were a slip of the tongue and he had no intention to attack the Luo community.

The lawmaker is expected to present himself to the Police to the Kilimani police station on Thursday for interrogation after he found himself in trouble over the remarks.

The MP found himself in trouble after the National Cohesion and Integration Commission got a hold of the video clip that showed him criticizing Tuju and his community.

He also apologized to the NCIC and assured the cohesion team that he will never repeat the statement again.

Waluke was in his region when he threatened to solicit support that will see Mr Tuju kicked out of the Jubilee party so that ” he can go back to his troublesome community.”

In his apology, Waluke mentioned that he realizes that the remarks made were deleterious to the Luo community as well as had the ability to affect the relationship he has with Tuju in the management of the party affairs. 

He exclaimed: “He is my boss at the party. I am going to call him (Mr Tuju) so that we settle this matter. If he picks my call, I will book an appointment so that we can meet and settle this matter.”
