Narok - Tension has gripped Narok town after the area leaders defied the government’s ban on rallies and demonstrations and staged a demo in the town.
Narok Senator Stephen ole Ntutu is leading other legislators and residents from the County in storming the governor’s office over allegations of misappropriation of funds collected from the Maasai Mara Game Reserve by the county government.
Ntutu says the demonstration would go on as they are not a threat to the security but they rather want to present a petition to the governor Kuntai ole Tunai.
Narok governor Kuntai ole Tunai has dismissed the claims as baseless politics aimed at slowing down the development that he has started in the area.
Yesterday, the government through interior and coordination Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery banned rallies and demonstrations saying that they could result in violent confrontations and loss of lives.
They are heavy presence of security personnel with a police helicopter hovering around the town.
