Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui has asked politicians to embrace tolerance and avoid statements that could plunge the country into chaos as the repeat presidential election nears.

Governor Kinyanjui described the recent developments in the country as disturbing and insensitive and can easily spark violence.

“It is unfortunate that some leaders are working hard to divide the country. I plead with all leaders from across the country and parties. Do not take us back to violence,” said Mr Kinyanjui in a statement to the press.

His statement comes in the backdrop of fresh demands and street protests against the electoral commission by the opposition National Super Alliance (Nasa).
