The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Politi­cians in Garissa county have been warned against in­cit­ing clans against each other. Speak­ing dur­ing Mashu­jaa Day cel­e­bra­tions at Garissa Pri­mary School yes­ter­day, as­sis­tant county com­mis­sioner Hiddi Gal­galo said the govern­ment is on the look­out for in­citers. He said they will not hes­i­tate to ar­rest and pros­e­cute any per­son plant­ing seeds of dis­cord. Gal­galo said Garissa county has sensitive clan dy­nam­ics, which would make it “very easy to start in­ter-clan skir­mishes”. He urged the po­lice to be alert and ar­rest in­citers, ir­re­spec­tive of their stand­ing in so­ci­ety. Gal­galo urged politi­cians to cam­paign peace­fully. He called upon the res­i­dents not to be in­cited.
