A few weeks ago, the 10-metre campaign billboard belonging to Kitui Senator David Musila was damaged by rowdy people. The Senator said he would have shot at those who destroyed his campaign billboard in Kitui town if he found them in the act.
“I could have shot at them and regretted it later because what they did amounted to impunity. No one bothers even though I lodged a complaint. The matter ended there,” Musila said.
He said the culprits are known and details of the vehicle they used were provided by the police, but nothing has been done.
He articulated concern that security agencies are not doing enough to bring to end prejudiced behaviors. Musila is in the race vying for governor as an independent against incumbent Julius Malombe and Narc’s Charity Ngilu.
Musila spoke when he met county commissioner Boaz Cherutich and NCIC officers, who have been deployed to the county to monitor violence and hate speech during election campaigns.
He said some candidates resort to violence after being provoked by their rivals because security agencies fail to act. He urged security agencies to do their work without fear or favor.
