DP Ruto Tell the Police to Remain Neutral Ahead of General Elections

Deputy president William Ruto has urged the police to exercise their duties independently without any external political interference. The DP has told the police that their role is to maintain law and order and not decided political contests. The DP was addressing mourners during the burial ceremony of MP Kimani Ngunjiri's son in Nakuru county.

The DP's comments were in response to the police action during the recently concluded by-elections where the DP allege that police unfairly attacked his supporters. Leaders allied to the deputy president including Lang'ata MP Nixon Korir clashed with the police over what they termed as unfair treatment. Therefore, the DP has defended the actions of his supporters and asked the police to remain apolitical.

Further, the DP had addressed Interior CS and Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai urging them to avoid misusing the police for political gains. According to the DP, the two leaders are being used by powerful politicians to target him and his supporters and paint him as violent. Therefore, the DP has told Matiang'i and Mutyambai that all leaders deserve fair political playground as the country heads to the general elections next year.
