President William Ruto has insisted that Kenya must be government by the rule of law even as Azimio La Umoja claimed that it will hold weekly protests until their demands are heard.
“Mambo bado. Tumeanza vita. Haitaisha mpaka Wakenya wapate haki yao Kila jumatatu tutakua tunafanya maandamano,” Raila told his supporters in Eastleigh before the gathering was cut short by police who lobbed teargas cannisters at them.
Ruto has responded saying he will not condone impunity. The head of state has said that Kenya will be governed by the rule of law and everyone must operate within the constitution.
“Nothing extra-legal will be part of what we do as a nation,” argued the president.
“As we enjoy our rights as individuals, we must be careful to ensure that we do not trample on the rights of others.”
Ruto was speaking State House, Nairobi on Monday afternoon after witnessing the swearing in of new Solicitor General Shadrack Mose.
The President also added that he was confident that Mose will offer good leadership based on his experience and understanding of the law.
“Provide leadership and ensure that the Government gets the right legal guidance to discharge its mandate,” urded Ruto.
“It is our commitment to ensure that we attract as much foreign direct investment as possible. We want to borrow less and do more for the country.”
