Leaders to Blame for Chemelil Crime

00:00 Nov 8 2013 Chemelil, Kenya

Description
The government has blamed political leaders from three counties of incitement that has caused clashes along their common border.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph ole Lenku said a section of leaders from Kisumu, Nandi and Kericho counties were preaching peace in the open, but secretly inciting locals. “The government representatives are present within the areas where complains come from. Have we lost our cultural and professional values?” he posed.

Lenku however did not say what action the government has taken or would take following his assertions on incitement.

Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo, who accompanied Ole Lenku, blamed MPs for the increased cases of insecurity in the country.

“MPs make law that police should not use force and this makes their work difficult,” said Kimaiyo.

The two were speaking at Chemelil Club yesterday where they addressed leaders from Nandi and Kisumu counties over rising insecurity in Muhoroni area.
