The youths who carried a coffin calling for end of deaths for political intolerance marched to the sub county headquarters and presented a petition to deputy county commissioner Mawira Mungania.
Led by nominated MCA Wambui Njoki, the youths further called for thorough investigations into the instigators of the violence that rocked the town for the better part of Sunday and the perpetrators arrested.
They said it is unfortunate that two young lives were lost and that security agents should put in place measures to deter a recurrence of such an incidence.
“We will not sit back and allow our youths to be used to settle political scores at their own expense,” the outspoken MCA said, urging the directorate of criminal investigations to investigate and take stern action against political leaders who plot to cause violence.
The chaos, she noted, is bound to taint the name of the county and lauded security agents for acting in haste to stem it.
Percy Njeri, also nominated in the county assembly said as local youths they will not allow the trend of violence to continue in political gatherings.
While referencing the Tanga Tanga faction, Njeri said it is wrong for leaders to hide in the church while secretly causing disunity among Kenyans.
Njeri further urged youths to stop allowing political leaders to misuse them to disrupt peace for their own interests, putting their lives at risk.
Mungai Karanja on his part said the coffin signified their solidarity with the two youths who passed away and to condemn the violence that brought business to a standstill.
“We are saying we will not allow politicians to misuse our joblessness instead of empowering us and we condemn it with one voice,” Mungai said.
