Nandi County Commissioner Harman Shambi has said that talks between the neighbouring Counties are ongoing in a bid to restore and maintain peace among the border communities ahead of the August 9 General Elections.

Addressing residents during the 59th Madaraka Day celebrations in Nandi, Shambi affirmed that peace will prevail in the respective borders before and after elections urging the border communities to preach peace and live in harmony as brothers and sisters of one nation.

Nandi County is a cosmopolitan region bordering the Counties of Uasin Gishu, Kakamega, Vihiga, Kisumu and Kericho which have been witnessing border disputes among the communities living there, thus there is need to strengthen peace and cohesion in the area ahead of the August polls.

“We as the County government of Nandi have embarked on peaceful talks with the leadership of these neighbouring Counties with one message of maintaining peace at all times.” He added.

The Commissioner reminded the youths in the region to be calm and avoid being used politically by politicians for political mileages among the interested parties urging them to shun away from dirty politics.

“Don’t allow yourselves be trickled by politicians to disrupt political meetings and gatherings or cause chaos.” He insisted.

He made it clear that anybody who will be found causing a breach of the law especially this time when the nation is preparing for elections will face the full wrath of the law.
