Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambu has accused his counterpart from Bura North constituency of being behind the killings happening at the border between Kitui and Tana River counties, after the Bura North MP Ali Wario threatened him with a gun yesterday and barred IEBC officers from Mwingi to register residents at Mwanzele market which is situated in Mwingi East Sub County.

   Joe Mutambu had taken voter registration drive to Mwanzele market which is inhabited by both Somali and Kamba people, before his fellow legislator from Bura arrived and interrupted the exercise while accusing Joe of being a thief.

     Mwingi Central MP and the IEBC officials were forced to flee the area, after the crowds became hostile to them and started throwing stones at them.

    Mutambu has since reported the matter at Ukasi police station where he recorded a statement claiming that his life is in danger. He has called upon the Kenya police boss Joseph Boinett to lodge immediate investigations immediately against the MP for threatening him with a gun and ensure that the legislator face the full force of the law.

     Mutambu has given the Somali herders who are grazing their camel in the farms belonging to the Kamba people an ultimatum of 14 days to leave.

    However, Bura North MP Ali Wario said that he won’t be scared by Mutambu, calling him a thief who has come to steal his votes and said that his people won’t vacate the area.
