Errant politicians tamed with introduction of new measures

27 September 2016, 21:09 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Politicians in Kirinyaga County will be required to notify police within 14 days prior to holding any political meeting in the area.

A meeting chaired by County Commissioner, Erastus Ekidor said this will curb rising political temperatures that could cause insecurity in the area.

While addressing the press at his Kerugoya town office on Tuesday, Ekidor cited recent incident where supporters of a Women Representative aspirant disrupted a meeting in Mwea town.

The function to award 7th edition of the Mwea Marathon winners presided over by Governor Joseph Ndathi was disrupted by rowdy youths who stormed the venue.

Police were forced to lob tear gas canister to disperse the youths.

Mwea East OCPD Kizito Mutolo warned them of dire consequences if they engaged in hooliganism.

Ekidor said politicians will not be allowed to storm meetings, adding that last Saturday’s incident was an isolated case.

“Let each aspirant convene his or her own political rally unless the two agree to share one venue. They too, will require to give a written notification to the respective OCS,” Ekidor said.

Political temperatures have risen in the County ahead of 2017 elections after former Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru declared interest in the governorship seat.
