NCCK warns poll chaos possible

By PATRICK BEJA | May 18th 2012 at 00:00:00 GMT +0300


The country risks sliding into another round of poll-related violence if politicians continue creating tribal divisions, the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) has warned.

NCCK also wants the Government to investigate recent killings of priests and grenade attacks in Coast Province.

NCCK Secretary General Canon Peter Karanja said the country was suffering from effects of ethnic groupings, which has been a big threat to the peace process.

“Our politicians continue with the behaviour of mobilising and popularising ethnic groupings, which will take us back to where we were after the last General Election if not stopped,” he said.

He was speaking in Mombasa on Wednesday evening after attending NCCK Coast regional conference.

Coast NCCK leaders called on the Government to resolve issues with the outlawed Mombasa Republican Council (MRC).

Bishop Lawrence Dena, the Coast NCCK chairman, told the Government to show commitment and ability to arrest the MRC problem before it gets out of hand.

Karanja also called on the Government and Kenyans to give the Interim Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) a chance to perform its mandate independently.
