Bungoma East Sub County commissioner Khalif Adbadala has said that police and intelligence officers are pursuing crucial links to arrest people suspected to be distributing hate leaflets.
The leaflets warning Mt. Kenya community from interfering with Mulembe community leaders were distributed in Kimilili, Bungona and Webuye towns.
Addressing residents at the Webuye Pan Paper stadium on Saturday during the Jamuhuri Day celebrations Khalif said that police have identified people who are distributing the leaflets and are about to arrest them.
“There is no one who has the right to say he will evict any Kenyan from anywhere in this era when we have a new constitution in place,’’ he said.
“Our county is cosmopolitan with people who are allowed to stay anywhere at any time and do business without being intimidated or disturbed,’’ he said.
Khaliff said that they are going to act according to the law and ensure there is peace in Bungoma East now before the elections and after the elections.
“We will not let innocent Kenyan be threatened because of some few individual, we have been living here peaceful and will not allow that peace to be disturbed,’’ he added.
The NIC warned leaders from issuing remarks that could propagate chaos in the country regarding the senators woes.
This comes as a section of Kikuyu business men in Webuye and some parts of Bungoma town are alleged to have began fleeing the county for fear of chaos if the minority leader in senate is off the voters list.
The leaflets said that there will be no peace if IEBC deregisters Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula from voters list.
Wetangula was found to have been involved in electoral offense and could risk being locked out of elections for two terms.
The cord core principle will appear before the five man team, lead by Thomas Letangule to explain why he shouldn’t be deregistered.
Cord leaders and politicians in Western have held several prayer rallies and demonstrations in solidarity with Wetangula.
Khaliff has also cautioned the bar owners in Bungoma East district on employing young girls as waiters as it is against the law and will arrest and sentence those who will be found as those young girls should be at school and not working either in the bar or in people’s homes.
He also warned them on playing loud music during this festive Christmas season as it violates the constitution.
“Where your right ends another person’s right starts so lets us not play loud noise.” He said.
