The Government should urgently reshuffle security officers in the Coast region for failure to restore peace in the Tana Delta.
Magarini MP Amason Kingi says security agents in Tana were not doing enough given that recent attacks occurred a short distance from a police station.
Speaking at Magarini yesterday, Kingi said police had failed to ensure more attacks are checked."We do not deny that the department of internal security has been working so hard. They have in fact done very good work. However, what worries us is that in Tana Delta, there are many policemen who cannot arrest such happenings and something should therefore be done to that effect," he said.
Kingi also asked politicians to stop politicking over the bloodshed and asked them to instead embrace peace and encourage Kenyans to co-exist.
"Politicians have a role to play towards ensuring peace. For instance, we have a lot to do in Tana Delta where we have lost many lives. It is time we started preaching peace to the people," he said.
Kingi, who is also a hopeful in the Kilifi County governor's race asked religious leaders to join the peace crusade and encourage Kenyans to pray for the country.
The minister's comments come shortly after more deaths were reported in the region.
