He claimed the plan was to create a situation of insecurity so that locals flee and fail to vote in the August 8 general election.

Marwa has claimed politicians from Lamu and neighboring Tana River counties have been funding the terrorists to conduct the attacks.

"The politicians are taking care of the terrorists including feeding them and ensuring they live comfortably inside Boni Forest." He said.

He further added that he is aware of politicians from the two counties who funded youths to wreak havoc during campaigns.

He went as far as saying the recent abduction of Public Works PS Mariam El Maawy by al Shabaab militants was politically instigated.

"The perpetrators will be apprehended whether alive or dead. They want people to think it is terrorists but we know the issue is political."

"We want the perpetrators to know that people will vote and will do so in large numbers when polling stations open next month," Marwa said.

Marwa claimed the plan was to create a situation of insecurity so that locals flee and fail to vote in the August 8 general election.

The regional coordinator said it was also clear that only persons and places affiliated to the Jubilee Party were being targeted by the terror attacks.

"Why hasn’t the governor or any leader for that matter come out to even issue a condolence message to the families who lost their loved ones?" he posed.

"Whats the meaning of their silence? These people are given food and weapons. They pass through villages as they go to conduct raids."

Marwa added it was also clear that only persons and places affiliated to the Jubilee Party were been targeted by the terror attacks, citing the incidents in Poromoko, Pandanguo, and Jima areas as part of the strategy to scare voters.

The regional coordinator has issued a shoot-to-kill order for any terrorist spotted in the county.

Meanwhile, the body of PS Mariam El-Maawy's bodyguard was found in Boni Forest during a search on Saturday.

Ayub Ndoloni, an AP officer, was with the PS when they were attacked by al Shabaab militants on Thursday.
