Blow to Mwangaza as Kindiki bans ‘okolea’

Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza has been dealt a blow after the Interior Cabinet Secretary CS Kithure Kindiki banned her anticipated ‘Okolea program’ rally that was expected to take place in Imenti Central.

Speaking during the installation of a new Deputy County Commissioner at Kiengu Sub-county in Igembe Central, Kindiki prohibited Mwangaza’s Okolea rally terming it arguing that it would lead to chaos.

“I have heard from various media stations that there are people planning to hold a political rally to incite residents. Such a meeting has been banned from taking place. Let no one dare me,” Kindiki said warning political leaders from inciting residents to cause chaos.

“No leader in the Country will be allowed to hold rallies to incite Kenyans, or political meetings that will lead to chaos,” the CS warned.

CS Kindiki castigated Mwangaza’s political camp for harassing journalists, provoking and abusing other leaders an incident that he claimed led to chaos.

“We will not allow anyone to pretend to be politicking while using poor citizens to cause chaos. Any leader found culpable of the Sunday chaos will be prosecuted. I call on all leaders involved to record their statement with police,” he said

“The same way we were very firm with Azimio leaders over causing chaos, it is the same way we will deal with those doing political rallies to incite residents,” the interios CS added.

His remarks come after the chaos was witnessed during Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza’s ‘Okolea Program’ function at Makiri, Igembe South Constituency on Sunday.

The Sunday chaos saw angry residents slaughter one cow and burnt mattresses that Mwagaza had come to donate to the public.

Police had to use teargas canisters to disperse the protesters.

“There is no politician who will be allowed, despite his rank, to cause chaos and destroy property,” Kindiki warned.

Mutuma and her boss Mwangaza have been engaged in a bitter leadership brawl since the two leaders were elected.

In addition, CS Kindiki highlighted that acts of lawlessness witnessed in Maua Town last Sunday are intolerable and will not be allowed in any part of the country.
