Busia County Commissioner Michael Tialal has assured the business community that there is peace in the County after the August 8th general elections.
Speaking after attending Assumption of Office Committee meeting at the County Government offices in Busia Town on Tuesday , the County Commissioner thanked the people of Busia County for embracing peace.
” There are no people bent on disrupting peace in the county. People are going on with their businesses without interference from any quarters and we happy about it. We are also alert and want to ensure that human life and property are protected.
I am appealing to the residents to maintain that peace and continue with their businesses as usual. So far so good. We have no quarrels and want that spirit to continue. People to embrace one another and work together irrespective of who won or lost. Life must continue.
I want them to respect the constitution. In any competition there are winners and losers. We need to accept that, but the constitution also allows any Kenyan a chance of disputing the results of the elections following the laid down mechanisms but not going to the streets and destroying property,” he said.
