Police investigate circulation of anti-Muslim leaflets in Nyahururu

17 April 2015, 09:18 Steven Njuguna

Nyahururu - Police in Nyahururu town have launched investigations into circulation of anti-muslim leaflets in the area.

Nyandarua North OCPD, Benjamin Onsongo said the circulation of the leaflets, that were cautioning Muslims to leave Manguo slums, started on Sunday night.

"All Muslims in Nyahururu town red notice ... you have 7 days to vacate this town for refusing to help us identify the enemy within. If you are not against them, you are one of them," read the leaflet in part.

He added that on Wednesday night, police thwarted a plan by unknown people to evict over 200 Muslims living in the slums after receiving a tip from members of the public.

“All our officers are on high alert. Those behind the act will be brought to book,” reassured Onsongo.

He said that no one should victimize them as they also have the right to do business and live anywhere in the country.

Laikipia Muslim Association chairman, Sheikh Isaack Osman told Muslims in Nyahururu not to live in fear and reassured them that  police are doing all they can to protect them.

“The leaflets are being spread by few malicious people and they should not divide us along religious lines. I believe Nyahururu is a peaceful place,” he said, adding that the community had agreed to embrace the Nyumba Kumi initiative to boost security.

Osman urged the locals to remain calm and let the government conduct investigations into the matter.
