Police investigate circulation of hate leaflets in Homabay

25 November 2013, 12:21 Oduor Omondi

Migori - Police are investigating the circulation of leaflets in Homa Bay town. The two paged leaflets were found scattered across the streets of the Lakeside town over the weekend, condemning some individuals from within and outside the County for allegedly sabotaging the work of Homa Bay County Governor, Cyprian Awiti.

Some of the allegations contained in the leaflets include a planned strike by Homa Bay County workers.

It is also alleged that the mentioned persons intend to incite residents of the County to hold a demonstration to oust their Governor.

Residents of Homa Bay town were surprised to find the leaflets in the streets even though the person who wrote or spread them are not yet known.

Other such leaflets were circulated in the town a few months ago. The current leaflets seem to be a reply aimed at counteracting the previous ones.

Michael Otieno, one of the area politicians whose names were adversely mentioned in the leaflets, has recorded a statement with the police alleging that his life is in danger.

Homa Bay CPD, Francis Kumut, told the area resident to embrace conventional avenues in resolving their grievances instead of resorting to anonymous leaflets.

“There seems to be some politics in this matter because these leaflets are counteracting the first ones. We have launched investigations to find out those who were involved in the vice so that action could be taken against them,” Kumut said.
