Arrest And Charge Economic Saboteurs With Treason Uhuru Orders The Police.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has directed police officers to arrest and press treason charges against anyone caught vandalising a national infrastructure.

Addressing 300 police cadet graduands at the Kenya Police Training College in Kiganjo, on Thursday, January 20, President Kenyatta also banned, with immediate effect, trade on scrap metals, directing that anyone found vandalising national infrastructure will be deemed to have committed economic sabotage, which is a treasonable offence. 

“We have seen towers of our transmission lines coming down as a result of vandalism. But we have also seen cases where people have intentionally vandalised some of our transmission lines and masts.”

“These are acts of nothing less than economic sabotage which is a treasonable act. The law is very clear on how you deal with individuals who commit treasonable acts and plunge the country into fracas for their own selfish needs.

“As such, we expect you, the police, to do your duty and to execute your function as the law dictates,” ordered the President.
