Deputy President William Ruto pitched tent in Busia county on Saturday, October 24 and faced hostility from a group of youths at the Korinda junction on the Kisumu-Busia highway as they barricaded the road and threw stones at his convoy.
Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i condemned the ugly scenes from the youths and stated that political leaders were free to move to any part of the country as he urged law enforcers to work with fairness and neutrality when managing political gatherings.
While speaking during the launch of Trinity Tv and Radio in Ol-Kalou, the tough-talking CS instructed the Busia county commissioner to collaborate with the police in ensuring the organizers and perpetrators of the chaos are brought to book.
"The Government will adopt zero tolerance on anyone disrupting legit political gatherings,” Said Matiang'i.
Following the directive from the Interior Cabinet Secretary, five people have since been arrested in connection with the chaos that rocked Dp Ruto's rally and will now face the wrath of the law for violence.
