Interior and National Administration Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has issued a directive for a thorough investigation and apprehension of the individuals behind the disruptive heckling incidents during President William Ruto’s visit to Kericho and Bomet counties.

Kindiki emphasized the need to identify and arrest the organisers, financiers, and perpetrators of the unruly behavior, regardless of their social or political status.

Addressing the Kericho County Security Management Team, Kindiki stressed the urgency of concluding investigations into the disturbances and taking decisive action against those responsible for orchestrating hooliganism.

He commended the team for their efforts in maintaining law and order but underscored the zero-tolerance policy towards disorderly conduct in political gatherings.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua expressed concern over the political tensions in the Rift Valley and announced plans to convene regional leaders for explanations regarding the recent disruptions. Gachagua condemned the heckling incidents during the presidential tour, urging leaders to prioritize unity and refrain from engaging in supremacy battles.
