NAIROBI, Kenya Jul 5 – Inspector General David Kimaiyo has urged the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy to end the Monday Saba Saba rally by 5 PM.
Kimaiyo urged people to disperse peacefully after the rally warning of any attempts of looting and violence during and after the rally will be dealt with accordingly.
“Any individual, whatever their status, who acts in a manner that threatens the rule of the law, will meet the full force of the law, our security is a shared obligation. I believe that since the CORD leaders have committed to a peaceful rally, they will uphold that in action and in spirit,” he said.
He also warns of any other gatherings in other parts of the country during the same day will not be tolerated.
“As people come to the venue, there will be controlled entry, all persons will be searched and screened to guarantee that they do not enter the venue with any weapons,” he said.
He urged Kenyans to continue staying in their areas of residence pointing out that chasing people from any part of the country will not be allowed to happen.
“Anybody who feels threatened as a result of certain activities of other people should report to the nearest police station, it is criminal to threaten others or direct any form of attack, verbal or otherwise to others,” he said.
