Annan: Unrest in parts of Kenya threat to polls

12 October 2012, 08:50

Nairobi  - The Panel of Eminent African Personalities on Thursday urged Kenya to deal with the rising cases of violence in parts of the country before the upcoming polls in March 2013.

In a statement to Capital News, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan who heads the panel said it was worrying that the violence was occurring a few months before the elections and cautioned the government to contain the situation and avoid a repeat of the 2008 violence.

Annan who mediated Kenya’s peace following the post election violence went on to add that the panel is deeply concerned by an increase in tensions and violence in the run-up to the elections in some areas, with reports of militia groups re-organising or being created.
