Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has warned the opposition about breaking the law during their planned nationwide rallies.
While saying that the government will not interfere with the opposition’s activities, the CS who was giving his 100 days score card yesterday warned that they will not tolerate breakage of the law. Azimio has announced a series of rallies across the country.
“I have no business with those who are doing demonstrations; actually I don’t care, on one condition; that they keep law and order. The day they will try to break the law, to breach peace, to incite public disorder, that is the day the full weight of the Ministry of Interior will come on them,” warned Kindiki.
“They can do rallies, they can picket and demonstrate, so long as they don’t disrupt businesses and force people who are not aligned to them to listen to them by force… they can do their politics… that’s not my business.”
He added that the government will not hesitate to prosecute any politician dealing in activities that pose a security to the country.
“I have told all politicians, they are my friends and allies when they are helping me make Kenya a secure country. The moment they pose a threat to that aspiration they are my clients in another sense,” the CS said.
Azimio leader Raila Odinga who lost to President William Ruto in the last elections has maintained that he won and is using the rallies to pile pressure on the government.
“We still maintain that Ruto got into State House by hijacking and subverting the will of the people. He must get out!” he told his latest rally on Sunday at the Kamukunji Gardens.
