Rift Valley assured of security during this electioneering season

The Rift Valley Regional Commissioner (RC) Maalim Mohamed has assured the region of boosted security ahead of the August general elections.

Mohamed said the Regional, County and Sub County Election Coordination and Collaboration Committees are actively supervising the activities on the ground to ensure peace prevails during this electioneering season.

The RC who spoke in Narok after meeting with the National Government Administration Officers (NGAO) said all people had a right to live in any place of their choice in the region and free to vote in their respective polling stations without being threatened by any circumstances.

“We all have a right to live in this region. No one will be allowed to cause chaos during or after the elections. We are very keen to ensure that peace prevails,” reiterated Mohamed.

The RC noted they are keenly monitoring areas perceived to be hot spots saying anyone with intentions to cause commotion will be dealt with as per the law.

He reiterated that the government has created the position of a Principal Chief in every county, who will be reporting directly to the County Commissioner.

In Narok County, Entotol Location Chief Moses Dapash was elevated to be the County Principal Chief.

“I will personally be communicating with him to get what is happening on the ground. We expect such positions to motivate the chiefs more so that they can perform their duties as expected,” said the RC.

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) has named Narok County a red-spot area owing to the fact that the county is a cosmopolitan area with the popular communities being the Maa and Kipsigis tribes.

The RC asked the chiefs to be government eyes on the ground and help to fight retrogressive cultural practices like Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), early marriages and school dropout.

In addition, Mohamed asked all the government officials to allow the government vehicles to be used during the election day so as to help resolve any issue that may arise on time.

“I do not want to hear that the OCS failed to get to a certain place because he or she did not have a vehicle yet there are enough vehicles in other departments,” he said.
