Leaders in Tana River County have called on residents to keep peace and security and avoid incidents that could spark fresh ethnic clashes.   County Commissioner Joseph Rotich and Governor Hussein Dado warned that those who will be caught breaching the prevailing peace and security in the county would be arrested and prosecuted.   Speaking during the Mashujaa Day celebrations at the Hola Stadium Monday, the leaders said there were elements within Tana Delta Sub County whose actions could trigger clashes, but warned security personnel would deal with them ruthlessly.   But the two leaders differed on whether it was pastoralists or farmers who were responsible for the current tension in Katsangani and Hurara areas of Tana Delta Sub County. While Mr. Rotich blamed pastoralists, who he said were deliberately grazing their livestock in people’s farms, Mr. Dado said lay the blame on invaders who he said had formed committees and were allocating themselves land in the affected areas.   Said Mr. Rotich: “If your livestock destroy other people’s crops, either you or your herdsmen will be arrested and prosecuted. We cannot sit back and watch you threaten the prevailing peace in this county.”   He however thanked the residents for maintaining peace in the county, saying since the attack on Gamba police station in June at the height of the Lamu Meyhem, the area had remained relatively peaceful.   But Mr. Dado, who spoke last, called on security personnel to arrest and charge invaders from other counties who he said had formed land allocation committees on land belonging to registered ranches in the affected areas.   The two however called on all residents to cooperate with the police by volunteering information that would help apprehend criminals, including members of Al Shabaab and other illegal groups.   Mr. Rotich called on all residents to embrace the nyumba kuni initiative, urging them to extend the same to urban centres and adjacent offices.   On his part, Mr. Dado said land grabbers from other counties, including government officers, had invaded land in Tana Delta and said they were the root cause of the problem.   “I urge the county commissioner and the police commander to evict these people, because they are the genesis of the tension in Katsangani and Hurara,” he said.
