Take action against Kibra poll violence agents, Governor Sang urges DCI

A week after Kibra by-election as concluded, Nandi Governor Stephen Sang has asked the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to take action against individuals suspected to have been behind the violence witnessed.

During the November 7 Kibra polls, cases of violence were reported including the attack of leaders and electorates suspected to have been opposed to Orange democratic Movement (ODM) candidate Bernard Okoth.

Among those attacked included former Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale, Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa among other leaders and electorates.


Governor Sang said it was unfortunate that no arrests have been made despite evidence and complaints raised by leaders.

Sang also blamed ODM leader Raila Odinga for his silence claiming he could shielding the proponents of the attacks. He asked the ODM leader to apologize to Kenyans over the chaos that were suspected to have been sponsored by supporters of his party.

“Seeing ODM and its leadership perpetuating violence against residents of Kibra in the name of protecting their bedroom is a big blow to the peace that is being witnessed. As Jubilee leadership, we are asking ODM through its party leader Raila Odinga to apologize to this nation for the kind of chaos that was witnessed in Kibra,” Sang said.

Sang who spoke to the press in Kapsabet town on Wednesday also claimed that Simba Arati engineered violence in Kibra and asked DCI to arrest the legislator.

Further, Sang criticized the leaders drumming support for the handshake saying they were controversial since they were also allegedly behind reported violence.

He asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to be wary of Raila since he has suspicious agenda.
