President William Ruto has warned that anyone who will disrupt businesses during protests would be dealt with accordingly.
Speaking on Wednesday, March 22 in Nairobi, President Ruto stated that his government would take robust measures to combat impunity.
“Through the rule of law the government will take robust measures to honor and respect the rights of all and demonstrate that no one is above the law, by decisively combating impunity, lawlessness, and disorder,” Ruto stated.
In what appeared to be an aim at Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga, the Head of State said that there is no reason anyone can disrupt businesses for personal gain.
“We have a duty to ensure every hustler operating in Kenya enjoys a conducive environment to pursue their goals unhindered. There is no reason whatsoever for anyone to stand in the way of free enterprise disrupt business or sabotage economic activities for personal selfish interests,” Ruto remarked.
He added, “Such impunity must be dealt with firmly and full accountability enforced to vindicate Kenya’s commitments as a free market economy.”
Raila on Tuesday announced that in their second face of demonstrations, there would be anti-government protests every Monday and Thursday.
The ODM leader also asked his supporters to boycott using Safaricom, KCB, and the Radio Africa Group services.
