Narok Muslim Association is accusing Supreme Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM) Deputy Secretary General, Sheikh Hassan ole Naado, of hand-picking delegates, therefore, overlooking the democratic process.

Narok Muslim Society chairman, Mohammed Hassan Yunis, says Mr Ole Naado failed to follow the set procedure in installing new officials.

Mr Yunis accused Mr Naado of dividing the Muslims in the region through such undemocratic processes.

Ole Naado is alleged on December 23, 2016, to have secretly listed new officials to represent the six sub-counties and submitted them to SUPKEM in Nairobi.

According to the association, conducting the elections, especially on a Friday is disrespectful and unacceptable to Muslim faithful, as Fridays are prayer days.

They further questioned why Naado is rushing the elections that are scheduled to take place after the country’s General Election.

Speaking at a press conference at Mosque in Narok Town on Friday, January 13, they officials have called on Governor Samule Kuntai ole Tanui to investigate the matter.

Such acts are threatening the Muslim faith especially in the Arab world, leading to formation of killer gangs aiming to cut off rivals.
