Bungoma - County Commissioner, Mohamed Maalim has said that they have identified two people who are behind authoring of leaflets threatening individuals who are non Bukusus.
Addressing the press at Kabula Pastoral Centre in Bumula sub-County, Maalim said that security agencies have picked leaflets with corded language warning people from Mt Kenya to leave the County if Bungoma County Senator Moses Wetang’ula’s name is struck from the voters roll.
He said that the hate language leaflets have been cited in Chwele, Tongaren, Kimilili, Webuye and Bungoma town warning Basebe (Kikuyus) to leave the County if the IEBC goes ahead to delete the Ford Kenya party leader's name for the allegation of bribery in the 2013 general elections.

“We have identified two authors of the leaflets and we are also pursuing some politicians who have been using public forums like rallies and social media to threaten people perceived to be from other regions, let me warn them that we will tolerate this nonsense and we want them to record the statements with the criminal investigation departments,” he said.
The leaflets reads in part: “If IEBC goes ahead to delete Wetang’ula's name, be ready to leave this region because it’s your tribesman who is doing this to our son and we won’t allow you to live amongst us.
Maalim warned that they will not accept any utterances or messages that will disturb peace in the County.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!
