25 July 2014, 19:30 Mbungu Harrison

Mombasa - Three days after four people were killed by unknown gunmen at Soweto area Likoni district, religious leaders from Mombasa County have urged the government to restore peace and security in Likoni area.

The Muslim and Christian leaders have urged the government to expedite its investigations and bring into book the Killers urging the locals to help the police with information once they spot any suspicious characters within the region.

They have however urged the local communities to live in harmony and dismiss any tribal conflicts within the Likoni Communities vowed to work with the police in their efforts to restoring peace in the region.

“There are people with bad intention, but the government is on top of things, we urge our people unite and live in Harmony,” Said Bishop Maisha for the JCC ministries churches in Kenya.

The government has deployed Kenya Defence forces to reinforce the security systems aready deployed in the area to provide security.

The move comes just a few days after some inciting leaflets against certain communities were collected by security agents.

They said the deployment of Kenya Defence Forces and General Service units of police at the entire Lokoni region is a good move by the government to protect its citizens.

Speaking to the press at Likoni JCC Church Compound after a joint religious meeting, Muslim preacher Maalim Sineno has appealed to the Religious community to preach peace in religious institutions as a way of cooling the insecurity tension in the country. He said the series of attacks in the entire coastal region should not  be taken for granted instead government should act upon the perpetrators.

“Security is deteriorating. We don’t want any religion nor community conflict. We ask the communities to embrace peace and help the police with information of any security threat,”said Maalim.
