Nyanza PC warns against violence during nominations

11 January 2013, 15:14 Oduor Omondi

Nyanza Provincial Commissioner (PC) Francis Mutie has divulged that the provincial security team is zeroing down on some aspirants who have resorted to violence, intimidation and character assassination of rivals ahead of  next week’s  political parties nominations.

Mutie has however not disclosed the names of the aspirants but insisted that investigations are currently ongoing to ensure that politicans and their supporters who engage in the vices are brought to book before the nomination exercise.

He also called on locals to observe calm and peace, observing that peaceful party primaries will help in averting a repeat of the 2007/2008 post-election violence.

He urged residents to desist from any acts of violence as a nonviolent nomination  exercise saying this will act as a mirror of the final outcome of the March polls.

Speaking during a function that saw him hand over 10 motorcycles to chiefs and their assistants drawn from Kisumu county, the Provincial head further called on political parties to conduct free and fair nominations in order to curb any form of rebellion.

Mutie said the motorbikes will be used in the fight against crime in Kisumu county as the chiefs and their assistants will be able to traverse the county quicky and efficiently.
