Muslim Clerics in TanaRiver County wants the government to withdraw the curfew imposed by newly appointed Interior CS Fred Matiang'i, terming it unjustified.
The Muslim leaders wondered why Matiang'i included Tana River in the dusk to dawn curfew yet the county has never experienced any attacks for over four years.
On Friday immediately after his appointment, the CS inflicted the curfew in Lamu, TanaRiver and Garissa Counties following the increased cases of al-Shabaab militants attacks.
Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya (CIPK) chairman in Tana River Sheikh Musa said the county is united and peaceful.
“We urge the government to remove the curfew, we cannot carry the burden of other counties,” he said. He added that in the previous years, the county used to experience deadly clashes during the electioneering period.
