Politicians in Kisumu county have been warned against inciting violence.
County commissioner Mohamed Maalim urged politicians to be tolerant. He warned that the government will not spare any leader who disrupts peace, regardless of their status.
This comes after a public spat between Nyando MP Fred Outa and a county government employee in Ahero on Wednesday.
They had attended a county government function for the distribution of tractors to rice farmers’ at Ahero Rice Irrigation Scheme in Nyando constituency.
Agriculture executive Henry Obade told Outa he should cut short his speech because some visitors wanted to leave.
But this led to an argument. Governor Jack Ranguma intervened and calmed them down. He told Outa not to politick in development forums.
