Leaders from Samburu County have called for the arrest of Thirdway Alliance Kenya party leader Ekuru Aukot for inciting members of the public.
Led by Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal, the leaders want Aukot to be arrested for alleging that clashes in Samburu were being fueled by politicians.
Aukot, in a series of tweets sent out after a visit to Samburu County highlighted how the insecurity issue is fueled by local leaders including MPs.
“To kill a student, they are paid Ksh50, 000 and Ksh100, 000 to kill an elite member of the community,” he tweeted.
“We sadly established that the hatemongers predominantly from one community especially the area MP who has persistently since 2012 threatened to expel members of another community from Samburu,” Aukot pointed fingers.
During his tour and public hearings in the County, Aukot also accused the local administration of discrimination in several areas including the issuance of title deeds and Identification Cards (IDs).
“Senior security officers are influenced to discriminate between communities by area MP, County Commander and County Commissioner and they even destroy water sources of one of the communities,” he claimed.
Samburu Governor Moses Kasaine has dismissed Aukot’s claims terming them as far-fetched and malicious.
Samburu North MP Alois Lentoimanga dismissed Aukot as a war monger out to cause divisions between the Samburu and Turkana Communities.
