Meanwhile, he argued that Azimio’s planned mass action remained illegal as it interfered with the rights of other Kenyans.
“It is not possible for the security authorities to allow crowds of people with stones and other offensive weapons to parade through the streets and neighborhoods of their choice while chanting political slogans and disrupting each other’s daily activities,” Kindiki noted.
Earlier, the Inspector General of Police, Japhet Koome, declared Azimio’s mass protest illegal and threatened to arrest anyone who intended to cause skirmishes in Nairobi’s CBD.
In response to Koome, Azimio leader Raila Odinga and co-leader Martha Karua said they would lead their supporters to mass peaceful protests and called on the police chief to arrest them.
Karua also warned President William Ruto not to direct the national police to commit human rights abuses.
He specified that regardless of the fact that Ruto had been expelled from the country, all violations would have been attributed to him as head of state.
