Mombasa governor aspirant Suleiman Shahbal and his senator counterpart Hassan Omar have asked the police not to take sides during the elections.
Speaking after receiving their nomination certificates from the IEBC yesterday, the two Wiper candidates said the police must treat all aspirants equally.
"The government should not lean on one side. We must all be treated equally. The police must be neutral," said Shahbal. Omar said Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo must prevent any kind of violence in the run-up to the March 4 polls. He said only security agents should carry weapons to political rallies.
