“We'll Arrest You" Government Warns Coastal Leaders Against Smuggling Voters

Coast regional coordinator John Elungata on Tuesday warned politicians against ferrying non-locals from one county to another ahead of the 2022 polls. This after some reports from Lamu county security department revealed that some politicians are allegedly smuggling people from other parts of the country to increase their votes leading to other issues like increased number of squatters and a spike in land-related conflicts.

This according to security apparatus is because politicians from low voter registration areas in Lamu and across the country have resorted desperate measures to ensure they win in the elections.

Elungata warned that transporting people to a different county will not be tolerated and shall attract legal measures against the politicians and those being bribed into migrating to other counties. He directed all the law enforcement agencies in the area to stop the act immediately. According to Elungata, this is one reason why many land related issues have spiked up in the region.
