As Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) continues verifying votes, Tanzanians are afraid of entering the neighboring country, Kilimanjaro Police has said.
Speaking to Daily News online, Kilimanjaro Police Commander (RPC) Hamis Issah said unlike previous days, before elections, Police have noticed that Tanzanians are not entering Kenya while their counterparts are crossing into the country as usual.
Up to 3:22pm, according to Kenyan media, the incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta, under Jubilee Party, is leading with 8,092,579 (54.26 per cent) while NASA’s Odinga trails with 6,690,279 (44.86 per cent).
In an exclusive interview, the Kilimanjaro police boss has said “It is because of fear but currently borders are safe and we are patrolling those areas.”
He said most people use Tarakea, Holili and Taveta borders to enter Kenya but police have witnessed no Tanzanian crossing to the neighboring country.
