'Worrying' wave of violence ahead of polls

04 September 2012, 12:41

Nairobi - The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) has sounded alarm over the recent spate of violence in the country saying it is "worrying" as next year's poll draws closer.

In a statement to Daily Nation, NCIC Chairman Mzalendo Kibunjia said the recent ethnic violence in Mandera County (between the Garre and Degodia), Wajir/ Garissa (between Ogaden clans), Tana River/Lamu County between the Orma and Pokomo communities respectively and the violent protest in Mombasa following the death of Sheikh Aboud Rogo is a clear indication

Kibunja went on to add that he regretted that over 70 innocent Kenyans have died, hundreds of houses torched and thousands of families displaced despite the county forums on peaceful election held last week.
