Residents in Uasin Gishu County have been assured of their safety during the upcoming UDA party primaries, according to County Commissioner Stephen Kihara.
In an interview with the press in his office, Kihara stated that everything is in order and that there is no need to be concerned.
"I want to reassure citizens and hopefuls in various positions that there will be enough security prior to, during, and after the UDA primaries on Thursday, April 4th, 2022," Kihara said.
UDA will run party primaries around the country for MCAs, MPs, Senators, Women Representatives, and Governors.
He emphasized that Uasin Gishu County has 468 polling stations and six constituencies that will serve as counting stations.
"We had a meeting to see what areas need our attention, to ensure that there is an enabling environment for people who want to participate in nominations," said the Uasin Gishu County Commissioner. "In relation to what we have recently witnessed where aspirants had goons, we have planned ourselves and we will deal with them accordingly."
He stated that the security team will ensure that the UDA party primary is calm because it is a dress rehearsal for the August 4th elections.
"We also want to make sure there is not any intervention because most of the issues we have had are due to the candidates' conduct, so they should conduct themselves well," he added.
