Kenya: Police Say No Guards for Kitale Aspirants

Kitale police boss James Kimani has said aspirants will not be allocated bodyguards ahead of general election.

He, however, said police will intensify security to facilitate peaceful campaigns and elections.

Addressing the press in his office yesterday, Kimani said bodyguards can however be given to MPs during campaigns.

Kimani made the remarks after Endebess parliamentary aspirant Jennifer Masis claimed she is receiving threats.
