IG Koome issue warning to Kenyans planning to cause chaos during Azimio’s protests
The Inspector General of Police Japheth Koome has issued a warning to citizens who intend to use offensive weapons to cause havoc in the country’s capital tomorrow during the planned Azimio One Kenya coalition anti-government protests.
The IG stressed that the government will not entertain any form of violence meant to interrupt normal functioning of businesses in the city tomorrow.
“We have heard others say that they will bring violence in Nairobi tomorrow. Nothing of the sort will happen because the police are ready to ensure there’s peace in the country. Anyone armed with offensive weapons will be arrested,” Koome noted.
He went further and urged every Kenyan to carry on with their normal businesses tomorrow without fear affirming that security teams are well prepared for the protest.
“We are ready as the police to ensure that there is calm in the entire country starting with Nairobi. Every Kenyan should go on with their work tomorrow. Ours is to ensure that every corner of this country is secure and safe. This is our country and I would urge all of us to be proud to be Kenyans,” he said.
“We have visitors from many foreign nations and we will not allow anything to happen in our capital city. Everyone has the right to go into the city center. Don’t intimidate my junior officers. I am the Inspector General of the National Police Service. The buck stops with me,” he added.
The Raila-led faction announced bi-weekly anti-government protests to be held on Monday and Thursday’s every week.
Raila said the decision to call for mass protests twice a week was due to “public demand.”
