CS Kindiki orders arrest of hecklers at Ruto’s Kericho, Bomet rallies

Interior and National Administration Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has ordered a crackdown on organizers and financiers of the heckling that was witnessed during President William Ruto’s Kericho and Bomet rallies.

The CS further directed the police to reign in on incidents of disorderly conduct in political meetings, conclude investigations and apprehend  organisers, financiers and perpetrators of hooliganism in the County, regardless of their political or social standing.

Kindiki’s directives came following a consultative forum with the Kericho County Security and Intelligence Committee, which also focused on the ongoing crackdown on the manufacture, distribution, sale, and consumption of illicit liquor, narcotic drugs, and psychotropic substances.

The CS ordered security managers at all levels countrywide to ensure strict compliance and enforcement of the 25-point policy and operational guidelines issued by the Government on March 6, 2024.

He warned that security officials who fail to comply will be held individually liable for any failure in eradication of poisonous and toxic substances within their jurisdictions.

“The manufacture, sale and consumption of illicit alcohol and narcotic drugs is an existential National Security threat that the Government is determined to permanently eradicate, by suppressing the supply chain for the dangerous substances,” said Kindiki.
