Kenya: Aspirant Calls for Disarmament in Trans Nzoia

Centre for Human Rights and Democracy former chair Ken Wafula has asked the newly-appointed Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo to disarm residents.

Addressing Kapuretwa residents on Boxing Day, the Trans Nzoia senator aspirant said the number of illegal fire arms in the area is alarming. "The worst affected areas are Saboti, Endebess, parts of Kwanza and Kitale town," Wafula said.

He asked the government to disarm all licensed aspirants until after the March 4 elections. Wafula said businesspeople are opting to close their businesses because of insecurity.
