"Every Leader Must Be Honored" Ruto Directs The Kenya Police To Do This To Opposition Leaders

William Ruto, the current president, has disclosed what he instructed the police to do to the opposition leaders. He said this when ringing in the new year at the Mombasa state house during his late-night function.

In his speech to ring in the new year, the president said that he had previously met with Kenyan police and given them instructions on how to handle opposition figures as well as their colleagues in the ruling party.

The president claims that he has instructed the police to respect both opposition and non-party politicians because they are all there to represent Kenyans. He has also stressed that Kenyans are a single nation and are not divided into supporters of the opposition or those who are not.

"Everyone who works with me, from assistant chiefs to regional commissioners, has already been informed. All of our police personnel have heard me say that although our nation has leaders from both the ruling and opposition parties, they are all there to serve the citizens of the Republic of Kenya. Every leader must be honored where he or she has been elected, I have told them. Everyone here should be aware that since we are all Kenyan citizens, there is no opposition and no government" President William Ruto remarked.
