Police declare war on Homa Bay trouble makers

11 February 2015, 15:59 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Police have dared trouble makers in Homa Bay to cause mayhem and face the full face of the law.

Acting Inspector General of Police Samson Arachi said that any violence would not be tolerated at any cost.

He added that the fact that there has been violence before had informed the decision to send 2,000 police officers to the County to oversee the elections.

Also, the recovery of weapons in a hotel in Homa Bay town last week had forced them to gear up for the elections.

" To ensure that the exercise is undertaken smoothly, all the relevant agencies have put in place sufficient measures on the ground,” he assured. The recovery of these weapons is an indication that there are people who – through others or on their own – would like to cause fear, apprehension, and even chaos during the forthcoming by-election," he said in a statement Wednesday.

Arachi added that there would be heavy police presence in all 816 polling stations in the County.

" They will be working around the clock to ensure that members of the public are safe and that those who may want to cause unnecessary fear and panic among the public, or to breach the security in any way are dealt with in accordance with the law," he added.

There will be 8 candidates in the by election, with ODM's Moses Kajwang and Maendeleo Party of Kenya's Philip Okundi the front-runners.
