Kindiki issues warning to goons ahead of President Ruto’s Meru tour

By Harun Mugambi

Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has issued a stern warning to individuals fond of disrupting presidential events saying that legal actions will be taken against them.

His sentiments come ahead of President William Ruto’s visit to Meru County tomorrow.

Speaking at Chuka University, Tharaka Nithi County, when he launched the Fourth Medium Term Plan (MTP-IV) today, Kindiki cautioned that any attempts to politicize or disrupt presidential events will not be tolerated.

“I have seen a lot of disrespect in presidential events across the country and it is not a good thing. The President’s visit is a great honor and an opportunity for the residents he visits. Let us ensure all events are conducted in a respectful and orderly manner,” urged Kindiki.

Kindiki warned, “We have put in place strict security measures to ensure no events that are disrupted by goons being ferried by buses to heckle any politician in this country, and that the events will proceed without any interruptions.”

CS Kindiki’s warning comes a day after nominated MCA Sarah Gakii alleged a plot by Governor Kawira Mwangaza’s team organizing to ferry women from the Igembe region to come to cheer her up and boo her political opponents.

“We know Governor Kawira is planning to turn the dairy farmers’ meeting political on Thursday, I ask the security team to ensure that no person attends the meeting without a dairy farmers’ registration card,” said Gakii during an interview with a local media house.

Meru Dairy CEO Kenneth Gitonga has since denied the allegations, affirming that the meeting is strictly for the registered dairy farmers.

“The meeting will be treated as private, with only one agenda,” he emphasized while reiterating that the event will remain focused on its primary agenda.

The head of state’s tour of Meru County underscores his commitment to supporting the agricultural sector, with a focus on reducing production costs and enhancing farmers’ livelihoods even as the nation moves towards achieving the goals outlined in the Kenya Vision 2030.
