Nandi residents urged to uphold peace ahead of August polls


The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) has asked Nandi residents along the border and Kenyans at large to preach peace ahead of the August polls.

Led by David Munui and other security leaders in a peace meeting that brought together security apparatus from Nandi and Kisumu, they called on peace and political tolerance among politicians as the Nation prepares to hold elections in August.

“I want to appeal to border residents especially those in Nandi borders to live together in peace and harmony as one family of this nation for the betterment of their future and the next coming General Elections, as Kenya is bigger than an individual,” Munui added.

Nandi County at large is cosmopolitan bordering the Counties of Uasin Gishu, Kericho, Kisumu, Vihiga and Kakamega respectively thus there is need to strengthen peace at all times.

NCIC in conjunction with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) together with the government have been conducting peace meetings with different groups including the Media, the security apparatus and other bodies to sensitize the public on the importance of knowing their rights as voters and also maintaining peace ahead of the August polls.
