His speech came in the wake of the charcoal ban by Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu that led to protests over burnt vehicles ferrying charcoal.
A song mocking the Kamba community was sung by two Kikuyu artistes titled Ikamba prompting calls for the composers’ arrest.
The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) chairman Francis ole Kaparo said he had received complaints about the song circulating on social media and other platforms.
“I wish to reassure the public that our investigators have made good progress and if the suspects are found culpable, NCIC will take the appropriate action,” Mr Kaparo said.
