, MACHAKOS, Kenya, Feb 12 – Maendeleo Chap Chap Party leader Dr Alfred Mutua now wants the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to put in place a system to lock out candidates who incite violence and preach hate.
Failure to do so, he warned the party will go to the Supreme Court and obtain a “Red Card” ruling that automatically bars politicians who are diving the country from being on the ballot box.
“We cannot accept that violence is a way of life in every election in Kenya,” Mutua said in Kiirua Market in Meru.
Accompanied by Dr Kilemi Mwiria who is running under MCC for the Governorship in Meru, Mutua said Africans are poor despite massive resources due to politics of poverty and incitement.
“Maendeleo Chap Chap is a party of harmony and peace,” Dr. Kilemi said. “We only talk about our policies to change lives and not about other leaders,” he said.
During the three day tour of Meru county, Mutua visited every constituency in the county and addressed members of the public in 19 towns.
Mutua said the recent heated election in the United States between President Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton never had an incident of violence.
“Some leaders want power and they will do whatever it takes, include leading to deaths, in their quest,” Mutua said. “We have to stop these greedy and evil people because Kenyans want peace and harmony.”
