Miguna And Abdullahi Respond to Kibicho's directives on ordering Arrest of political hecklers.

Lawyers Ahmednasir Abdullahi and Miguna Miguna have challenged Interior Senior Officer Karanja Kibicho's directive to use the strap on paid hooligans interrupting political gatherings.

On Friday evening, the two resorted to social networks to criticize Kibicho's decision, calling it unlawful.

According to attorney Ahmednasir, Kibicho seems to have no legal authority to instruct the Inspector General of Police's office because it is an autonomous organization.

"As Attorney General, Kibicho seems to have no authority to command the Inspector General or any police officer... in reality, Kibicho represents Kenya's Investigating Officer!" Ahmednasir posted a tweet.

Heckling, according to Miguna, seems to be a political privilege to which every Kenyan is entitled.

"Heckling is permitted and freedom of speech." Constitutionally safeguarded We commend Kenyans who've already vigorously used their rights to free speech in Mount Kenya and other locations of the state. Don't give up. Don't be afraid. Don't be alarmed. "Continue till the 9th of August," Miguna objected.

Kibicho urged government officials on Friday to collaborate closely with other security authorities to prevent the creation of recruiting organizations accused of interrupting political meetings.

He said that intelligence collection had linked recent attempts to disrupt demonstrations in Kirinyaga Region to paid gangs.

"Kirinyaga is a tranquil county, and its people are civilized and welcoming." "We cannot permit a few thugs to cause trouble here and tarnish our county's fine name," he stated.

Kibicho attributed the incidents recorded in the county to two regional leaders who allegedly encouraged adolescents to sow mayhem at rival campaign rallies.

The PS asked citizens to demonstrate political forbearance by giving rival candidates equal time in the elections on August 9.

"Insults and encouraging anarchy are regressive and primitive methods, and Kirinyaga might be above." We must reject politicians who use cheap booze as well as ganja to damage the brains of our young people in order to achieve political glory.

He was responding to recent incidents in which certain politicians' rallies were disrupted by alleged hired thugs, particularly around Central Kenya.

He has spoken at Kirinyaga as he formally established seven newly gazetted administrative entities.
