Lugari Sub-County Police Commander Bernard Ngungu wants the youth not to accept to be used by rogue politicians for their own selfish political gains as August 9 General Elections nears.
Ngungu said as the country nears General Elections in the next 26 days, the youths should keep off hooliganism, rowdy elections campaigns, and instead they should prepare to vote in leaders they wish will bring development and peace with the malt-ethnic Sub-County.
The Sub-County police commander warned that police will arrest youths involved in chaotic campaigns as enough of the security agencies network has been put on high alert to ensure peaceful elections are realized.
“Leaders who want to use you, cause chaotic campaign scenes should be avoided by all means because the results will be disastrous on your side,” Ngungu advised youths.
The police boss asked the youths to engage political leaders objectively and peacefully while rallying behind leaders who have the interests of the community at heart.
To political leaders, Ngungu advised them to follow the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission election rules to avoid being disqualified at the last minute.
He said political leaders seeking to be elected should observe law and order and seek votes from the electorates peacefully without causing chaos or harm.
