Violence hotspots identified ahead of Saba Saba rally

06 July 2014, 19:59

Nairobi - Security agents have listed violence hotspots around the country ahead of CORD’s Saba Saba rally.

While assuring that security apparatus has been put in place to ensure peaceful rally on Monday, Interior Principal Secretary Mutea Iringo identified the Nairobi CBD, Dandora, Mathare, Mukuru, Kibera, Chokaa, Baba Dogo, Embakasi, Njiru and Kayole as the major hotspots of insecurity.

Daily Nation reports that tight measures have been taken to bolster security in areas such as Shanzu, Mishomoroni, Vikwatani, Kongowea market, Kiembeni and Majaoni.

Iringo’s comments come a few hours after a gang of suspected MRC members launched attacks in Lamu and Tana River counties in the Coastal region, killing over 22 people.

Police in Kisumu, Naivasha and Nakuru are also on high alert following recent rumours of hate leaflets that have sent multitudes of panic-stricken residents into hiding for fear of ethnic violence.

CORD have so far assured of a peaceful rally and allayed public fears of possible bloodshed.

The government has deployed 15 000 police officers to secure Nairobi during the rally. All attendants of the rally will go through thorough security checks to ensure that peace prevails in the city.
