Red flag over hotspot areas


Nairobi – Lobby groups on Wednesday launched a report that identified 24 counties as possible violence hotspots as the country prepares for the next General Election.

According to the Daily Nation, the areas identified are: Marsabit, Isiolo, Mandera, Wajir, Narok, Garissa, Tana River, Mombasa, Kwale, Kilifi, Nairobi, Trans Nzoia, Nyamira, Migori, Bomet, Kiambu, Uasin Gishu, Turkana, West Pokot, Laikipia, Nakuru, Kisumu, Bongoma and Kirinyaga.

The report on conflict mapping and profiles of 47 counties however urges Kenyans to remain vigilant to avert a repeat of what occurred after the 2007 elections, when about 1,133 people lost their lives and a further 650,000 were displaced.
