Kenya: Uhuru Warns Against Violence in Run-Up to August Polls

Nairobi — President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned against any acts of violence in the ongoing party primaries across the country.

President Kenyatta says any aspirant found engaging in violence will face the full force of the law.

There have been acts of violence reported in various parts of the country since last week when the Orange Democratic Movement Party kicked off its nominations.

President Kenyatta, who addressed a press conference at State House Nairobi, a day to the start of the Jubilee Party nominations, says his party will uphold the highest integrity and democracy standards to ensure the will of the people prevails.
