COUNTY CHIEF WARNED LEAD­ERS

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

In June, Ki­tui county com­mis­sioner Boaz Cherutich is­sued a stern warn­ing to politi­cians to de­sist from mak­ing in­flam­ma­tory state­ments. He said the County Se­cu­rity Com­mit­tee was con­cerned by the in­creas­ing cases of vi­o­lence in po­lit­i­cal meet­ings. He said with 2017’s elec­tions near­ing and cam­paigns hav­ing started in earnest, au­thor­i­ties will deal firmly with those en­gag­ing in hate speech. He urged cit­i­zens to keep the po­lice in­formed.
