But PS Karanja Kibicho has responded to DP Ruto following his allegations and has trashed those claims. Kibicho told off the Kenya Kwanza Alliance team saying that they were using coercion in seeking support.
"Elections are won through persuasion, not coercion or fear mongering. To our dismay, we're aware of leaflets warning the electorate of dire consequences should they fail to vote for certain candidates on August 9," Kibicho said.
The Interior PS also revealed that a security team had been deployed in the region and that the authors and distributors of the leaflets are being pursued. Kibicho warned those who will be found culpable that they will face the music. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

But as the government talked tough, William Ruto claimed that the leaflets were a scheme aimed at inciting communities living in the region and were allegedly being perpetuated by NIS. However Ruto urged communities living in the region to avoid falling victim to such alarming messages by individuals he said were plotting to disrupt polls. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
