Garissa Governor Nathif Jama has raised the red flag over what he calls dangerous remarks by an opponent in the gubernatorial race.

Speaking when he presided over a prize giving ceremony at Manhal Integrated Academy, Jama said remarks attributed to an opponent recently endorsed by a local clan for the top seat was laced with hate speech and put security agencies on alert.

“I ask the government to carefully study clips showing the said candidate making inflammatory remarks. The government should act proactively instead of waiting until it was too late” said Jama.

On corruption allegations the said candidate levelled against his administration, Jama dared his opponent to submit any evidence he has to the relevant authorities for investigation.

The tough talking governor told off his opponent saying he had a history of corruption himself.

“Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones, I am telling him to be careful because he is himself known for past corrupt practices” Jama said.

During the ceremony, all the 21 pupils who sat for last year’s KCPE exams were rewarded for their exemplary performance after scoring between 404 and 360 marks to help their school emerge as the best in the county with a mean grade of 383marks.
