Protest if you must, but no violence – Uhuru tells CORD

10 June 2016, 19:52 PSCU

Nairobi - The government will not tolerate any more destruction of property by the Opposition under the guise of peaceful protests.

President Uhuru Kenyatta said stern action will be taken against anyone who destroys public or private property while claiming to be holding peaceful demonstrations.

He also called on those who take part in the Opposition demonstrations over the IEBC to use their intelligence and stop provoking security officers.

President Kenyatta said it was laughable for someone to throw stones at armed officers and expect that the policemen will enjoy the treatment. He said such foolhardy people will only have themselves to blame.

“We will not allow demonstrations to be used to destroy any property,” said President Kenyatta in Tala, Machakos where he launched development projects.

He gave his warning after observing that the Opposition was not genuinely interested in dialogue over the IEBC.

President Kenyatta said even after the Jubilee Government nominated MPs to sit in a select committee of Parliament, the Opposition appears to be backtracking even though it had used the excuse of wanting dialogue to cause destruction of property and lose of lives.
