27 January 2014, 12:53
Nakuru - Njoro Member of Parliament, Joseph Kiuna has said Cabinet Secretary for Internal Security Joseph Ole Lenku should resign.
Kiuna said that Lenku should come out clear and say what interest he has in Mau Narok division which boarders Nakuru County and Narok county.
The legislator said that Ole Lenku has been issuing threats to one community residing at Mau Narok through the area DC.
“Internal Cabinet Secretary should tell us what interest he has in Mau Narok because he is issuing threats to junior officers in the area,” said the MP.
Speaking on Sunday during meeting in Sobea, the MP said some leaders were going around inciting communities against each other.
The lawmaker said that some leaders from Narok County want to grab Mau Narok ward on the grounds that the land belongs to their forefathers.
“We are well aware that some leaders from Narok are complaining about historical injustices regarding the land in Mau Narok but we shall not allow these things to divide the residents of this area,” he said.
He urged the counties of Baringo, Nyandarua, Kericho and Narok to mind their own business instead of spreading their internal politics to Nakuru County.
Nakuru County governor, Kinuthia Mbugua who was among the key guests in the meeting, echoed the same sentiments saying his County government will not tolerate external squabbles from other counties.
Mbugua said Nakuru County has come a long away in ensuring peaceful coexistence among local residents and that he will not allow other leaders to divide the County on tribal lines.
“Politics from other counties which seek to divide our County will not be allowed at all because we have far more important things we want to do for the people who voted for us,” he said.
