At the same time, the Government of Kenya through the office of the Attorney General has responded to the decision of banning the ongoing curfew by the high court over claims that it used all the means possible to bring to an end to the ongoing community clashes that begun in last year in September.
On the other hand, Interior Cabinet Secretary has Protested the decision by one of the Tiaty Constituency to sue the Government. Matiangi, Believes that the government through it's leadership had all powers to impose Dusk to Dawn Curfew in Rift Valley. Matiangi has also lamented that some people might be behind the decision by the Court to render his decision powerless.

This was not done," Kemera says.
