Kindiki Issues Directive to Police Bosses After Heckling at Ruto Events

Senior police officers have been issued stringent directives by Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki in response to incidents of heckling at events attended by President William Ruto.

CS Kindiki was compelled to convene an early morning meeting with the Kericho County Security and Intelligence Committee, presided over by County Commissioner Gabriel Kitiyo, as a result of the incidents.

The CS instructed the law enforcement officers to investigate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals responsible for disorderly conduct at political parties throughout the meeting.


He additionally requested that they conduct an inquiry and hold accountable those who finance disorder at political gatherings.

“The security team is also tasked to reign in on incidents of disorderly conduct in political meetings, conclude investigations and apprehend the organisers, financiers and perpetrators of hooliganism in the County, regardless of their political or social standing,” Kindiki directed.

This follows two confrontations with antagonistic crowds that President Ruto encountered over the weekend during his tour of the Rift Valley region.

In the initial incident, citizens of Kericho applauded Governor Erick Mutai. President Ruto was compelled to intervene when, in order to permit the Governor to address the gathering, he demanded tolerance.

The public’s heckling of Bomet Governor Hillary Barchok during the second incident caused Ruto to lose his temper.

While addressing a rally, the President urged residents to maintain order and exercise restraint as he lectured them on their behaviour of booing the county leader in his presence.

Subsequently, Ruto intervened in an effort to appease the disorderly inhabitants who persisted in their disruptive behaviour. He advised them to exercise their democratic right to vote in the subsequent election, with the intention of holding ineffective leaders responsible.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua was compelled to read a riot act to the leaders of the Rift Valley as a result of the two incidents.
