DCC calls for peace

Rachuonyo sub county Deputy County Commissioner, Mohammed Ibrahim, has called for calm in the region as the country heads for the repeat presidential election.

The DCC said the days ahead are replete with activities bordering on election and national examinations and called on residents to remain calm and ensure law and order prevails for the smooth running of these programmes.

The commissioner who was speaking Friday during the Mashujaa day fete at Kosele stadium however said every Kenyan had a right to vote or not to vote saying those ready to vote on October 26, must be allowed to do so freely as Kenya is governed by the rule of law.

Those who freely choose not to vote on that day should stay at home, the DCC said.

The commissioner urged anybody preparing to demonstrate to be peaceful as enshrined in the constitution and desist from harming others or destroying property saying security agents are ready to maintain law and order any time anywhere to protect lives and property.
