Mungatana: Stop blaming politicians for Tana

29 October 2012, 12:54 Alloys Musyoka

Garsen Member of Parliament has asked the government to investigate the chaos that led to deaths of over hundred people in Tana and arrest the perpetrators instead of blaming politicians.
Danson Mungatana said that the clash was not as tribal as the government had painted it, since it involved two armed groups who were killing innocent children, women and elderly people.
Addressing Internally Displaced People at Tarasa town during a public gathering organized by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission where they distributed relief food to displaced people, Mungatana said that the recent chaos were very different from the previous ones.
“We should not be forced to agree that it was tribal clash because there have been tribal clashes years back but such killings were not witnessed. The government should investigate and arrest all youths involved together with those who fuelled them,” he noted.
The Narc Kenya Secretary General said that the two armed groups involved in the chaos were well organized and coordinated.
The MP went further to add that the government should take responsibility and compensate the clash victims.
He further urged the locals to co-exist peacefully, saying that violence will not only lead to more loss of lives but also interfere with development.
Mungatana said the region cannot be developed by one community and encouraged investors from different tribes to take part in developing the region.
The aspiring governor appealed to the residents to elect visionary and people-minded leaders who are ready to use of the available resources to benefit them.
“Look for a leader who will make sure resources here is well distributed and benefit all people. Shun those leaders who divide you on tribal and racial lines,” he said.
“I am leaving the MP position for a governor one and so I advise you not to elect someone who will go to parliament and starts sleeping but those who will present your grievances there,” he added.
