The Saboti MP has expressed concern about leaflets that have been circulated in his constituency. The message on the leaflets was that one community should not support another community’s political candidacy. Saboti is one of Trans-five Nzoia’s constituencies, with two dominant tribes, the Sabaot and the Bukusu. With only 57 days until the General Election, the two communities are leaning toward the Kenya Kwanza team led by Deputy President William Ruto. The region’s major political parties have been the Ford-Kenya, the ANC, and the Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K).
Caleb Amisi, on the other hand, has spoken out against the incitement remarks on the leaflets. He stated that Kenyans are not ready to return to the dark days, and that politicians who incite residents will face prosecution. He stated that Kenyans are united and that the elections will be peaceful. He chastised violent leaders and warned them that the law would deal with them harshly. Amisi stated that his residents value peace and that elections come and go, but the Bukusu and Sabaot will continue to coexist. Saboti has always been a volatile political region, and communities have been warned and cautioned against violence.
