The MP added that residents who participated in the repeat should not panic since it was their democratic right.

“It appears the leaflets were printed by people with money, with the intention of causing ethnic chaos but I, as MP, will not accept that,” he told The Star by phone on Sunday.

Mr Savula said he asked IG Joseph Boinnet to ensure the perpetrators are arrested and charged.

Senior police officers in the area said they were probing the situation.

The area is a NASA stronghold where many boycotted the vote – less than 3,000 voted on October 26th.
