Police IG Mutyambai on Spot over Violence at DP Ruto Rallies

A section of politicians allied to Deputy President Dr. William Ruto in Uasin Gishu has challenged the Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai to enhance security afforded to the DP in his political campaigns across the country.

Led by Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago and Soy Member of Parliament Caleb Kositany, the politicians described a recent spate of attacks witnessed in the DP’s political rallies in Jacaranda Nairobi, Kondele Kisumu and in Nyeri town were as a result of failure by IG Mutyambai to guarantee safety to all politicians vying in August general election.

“We have seen a particular trend of attacks in some of the Deputy President’s political rallies. We want to inform the Inspector General of Police that if this country will head into a political turmoil because of his failures he will be held personally responsible,” said Governor Mandago.

The leaders did not either spare the Uasin Gishu County Commissioner Stephen Kihara who in the recent past has come under attacks from MPs allied to the DP.

They accuse him of inciting communities in the county.

“We are warning the County Commissioner, we know he has been having secret meetings. We have written to the ICC just in case he feels that he can threaten the peace and cohesion of our communities. We are warning him that he will be accountable for any chaos and violence that might occur in the county,” said Kositany.

“As leaders from this country, we will not allow anyone to disrupt the peace that we are experiencing. We are ready to lose everything but we cannot lose peace in this county. Not only in this county but as a nation. We cannot afford as a country that is progressive and democratic to go back to the past,” added Governor Mandago.

The Uasin Gishu leaders also responded to Cabinet Secretary for Interior Dr. Fred Matiang’i who had asked politicians to stop interrupting civil servants’ duties.

“We are representatives of the people, you are employed also to work for Uasin Gishu people. We will not be intimidated, and we will not fear anyone. We have a plan and a destiny for this nation, take your threats elsewhere,” Kositany said.

Political leaders in Uasin Gishu have on numerous occasions assured communities in the county of peace and unity before, during, and after the August 9 poll.
