Nairobi - A section of leaders from West Pokot County have expressed their concern over high political intolerance in the area and fear that they will be eliminated using witchcraft.
The leaders blamed some political leaders of planning to eliminate some of the successful ones in the county who are enjoying majority support from the residents.
Speaking on Sunday during a Church function at Sigor Catholic Church, one of the leaders claimed that his life was in danger after a witch doctor from Tanzania called him a few days ago to reveal to him of a plan to eliminate him by some unnamed people.
He said the witchdoctor who comes from Morogoro in Tanzania told him that some of his political rivals went there to find ways of eliminating him before the 2017 General Elections.

The MP said there is high level of political intolerance in the County and called on religious leaders to unite leaders in the County.
“I am calling on all the leaders in the county to unite and shun divisive politics. Religious leaders should spearhead this initiative,” said the legislator.
However, the MP said he doesn’t fear his opponent and called on his rivals to stop using black magic to win political supremacy in the region.
