Said Hiribae (Galole) and Ali Guyo Wario (Garsen) are claiming that the county boss has been inciting the Somali against the Pokomo of Tana River over a border row.

In a press conference in Parliament on Wednesday, they said that the same should apply to Korane's deputy Abdi Dagane.

The lawmakers said that the leaders have allegedly been inciting the Somali to evict the Pokomo from a disputed area in the borders of the two counties.

They gave Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai a three-day ultimatum to do the same, adding that Fafi MP Abdikarim Osman should also be treated to the same.

"We demand that the government takes stern action on Garissa Governor Ali Korane and Fafi MP Abdikarim Osman for spreading hatred and incitement,” said Wario.

The two and county Woman Representative Rehema Hassan said that the two have since told their people to attack the Pokomo should they step in the marked disputed areas.

They also want measures taken against Fafi MP Abdikhaim Osman for threatening to unleash a militia on the Pokomo.

"We are law-abiding citizens if the law protects all of us, who will protect us from the militia about to be unleashed on our people?" added Wario, who claimed that the threat was issued a month ago.

He said that Tana River County community is now worried given that Osman made the remarks while meeting Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi in Harambee House.

He added that even after reporting the issue at Parliament Police Station, nothing has happened.

The lawmakers said that the fear has disabled operations and development in the county, calling upon Garissa politicians to observe their borders to avoid causing unnecessary tension.
