Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has summoned Marsabit county politicians over incidences of violence in the area.
According to the commission’s preliminary reports, the clashing parties were affiliated to Frontier Alliance Party gubernatorial candidate, Ukur Kanacho and Jubilee party’s Mohamed Mohamud.
The two candidates are gunning for the same seat. Their supporters threw stones at each other at Moi Girls’ grounds before the President’s arrival.

They are to appear before IEBC’s Electoral Code of Conduct Enforcement committee on the 28 July.
Three people were shot when violence erupted shortly after the President and his Deputy left Marsabit for Moyale town.
It was not clear who between the two opposing parties fired the shots first. More police officers were deployed to the area to restore calm.
