NIS behind Mombasa hate leaflets to cause fear, voter apathy and help Uhuru — Joho

The National Intelligence Service is responsible for hate leaflets found in Mombasa and plans to use them to cause voter apathy and scare away some voters, Governor Hassan Joho has said, adding this is meant to work in President Uhuru’s favour. The leaflets linked the county boss to skirmishes. But Joho said the plans will be frustrated. He spoke in Mvita Grounds on Sunday during an ODM rally. “Mombasa is peace-loving and no one will hurt his neighbour,” Joho said. One leaflet warned people from upcountry against voting for any other candidate apart from the Sultan — a nickname given to Joho by his admirers. Police are investigating whether one of Joho’s rivals was trying to implicate him to hurt his governor bid. Three arrests have been made in Likoni. Information remains scant as it is unclear whether the suspects were the source of the leaflets or were merely used for distribution.
