Government security agencies have been beefed up to deal with leaders who preach hate and divisive politics, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has said.

Speaking in Nyamira on Saturday, Dr Matiang'i (pictured) said there were some people determined to cause chaos akin to the 2007-08 post-election violence especially now that the country is moving into another electioneering period.

Matiang'i also said the government is concerned that young people are being used to spread rumours and tribal hate using social media.
