The cabinet secretary for security Fred Matiang'i held a security meeting today where he condemned violence that was experienced in some parts of the country where by elections were held.
He pointed out that some politicians thought that the only way to gain political dominance and popularity was through creating violence. He sighted an incident where the former Cs for sports Rashid Echesa was caught on camera slapping an IEBC officer in a poling station.
The fuming Matiang'i said that he was not going to tolerate that at all as long as he was the Cs for security. He went on to say that he was going to revoke gun licences for some politicians as they had openly shown they were not fit to own such a weapon.
He further added that if such behaviors of rowdy leadrrs were going to be tolerated, then it was evident that things were going to be uncontrollable come next year where the country will have a general election. He promised to bring to book all the leaders that caused mayhem in the by elections to send a warning to others.
