Here are some of 11 most foul-mouthed Kenyan politicians to mention but a few.
The Gatundu Member of Parliament is the poster child of hate speech in Kenya.
Every time the legislature opens his mouth he never closes it without uttering an insult or a foul word.
Until he came into the political scene, the Kenyan political space much as it was dirty it was not that foul mounted however thanks to the second time MP Kenyan leaders have learnt from him and now trade barbs like sailors.
His barbs is normally directed to Kenyan opposition chief Raila Odinga and sometimes the Luo community, he has uttered so many unprinted insults enough to make a priest go deaf that it can’t be written here without the risk of angering sections of Kenyans.

Nowadays whenever he is not happy about something the whole nation would definitely know, Uhuru doesn’t mincehis words.
His vocabulary nowadays boosts of colourful words like Shetani, and Mkora among others (Devil and thug) leaving some to wonder if hurling insults has become the new qualification for presidency.
The former chairman of Nairobi University Student’s Organisation (SONU) and Embakasi East Member of Parliament is a graduate from foul-mouth university with a first class distinction in the art of creating and dropping colourful vocabularies.
He recently captured national headlines when he allegedly insulted the president as Son of bi*ch something which saw him cool his heels at Kileleshwa police station for subversion charge.
While in the university he was famous for his catchy but unsavory public rhetoric’s while hunting for votes, he clearly seems to have transferred the trait to national chambers.
Kenya’s father of democracy can also drop some punches when provoked.
Despite cutting a father figure stature for himself, Raila doesn’t shy away from dropping some bombshells on Jubilee administration and his opponents whenever he hits the campaign trail.
The Suna East MP has hit the headlines mostly for all the wrong reasons.
A fierce Raila Odinga supporter the legislature has sometimes bordered on hate speech in his support for the opposition leader.
He unsavory described his experience at Pangani police station where he and five other legislators were holed up for hate speech charges to all and sundry.

Mganga, Mchawi, mtu wa Vitendawili (Withdoctor and Tale spinner) seems to forever be on Deputy President Lips.
His public speeches are never complete without him dropping the mganga line in reference to Raila Odinga
The Nairobi governor has punched walls, insulted his opponents and never hold back from speaking his mind even in public podiums, something which has earned him the distinction as one of the most controversial leaders in Kenya today.
He took his insults a notch higher when in 2014 while accompanying President Uhuru Kenyatta who was facing crimes against Humanity (the charges have since been dropped) he wore a t-shirt printed with insults directed at the International Criminal Court (ICC) to symbolize solidarity with the president.

The former Kiambu governor is not only wealthy material wise but he also happen to possess one of the richest and colourful vocabularies among Kenyan leaders.
He was resoundingly defeated and humiliated in the Jubilee primaries something largely connected to insults that he allegedly heaped on Kiambu women and his perceived arrogance.
He allegedly told Women in Kiambu.
“Women, I will give you KSh 400, KSh200 for a biker and KSh 200 for panties because your husband's can't afford that for you.”
