Gachagua Explains Why Govt Deployed Police in Nairobi Despite Raila-Ruto Truce

Kenyans have been on edge since the start of the demonstrations on Tuesday, March 27, with the DP, Rigathi Gachagua, on Monday, April 3, revealing that the government would still deploy police officers in certain areas of the country.

In a statement, Gachagua noted that this was in line with earlier preparations before Azimio Leader Raila Odinga called off planned protests on Sunday, April 2.

The Deputy President, in his statement, urged Kenyans to go back to work and resume their businesses with vigor and alacrity.

He further warned that all lawbreakers would be swiftly apprehended and prosecuted in accordance with the law.

Gachagua further congratulated Raila Odinga for calling off the demonstrations and choosing to pursue his issues in Parliament in accordance with the Constitution and the laws of Kenya.

He also gave an ultimatum to Azimio to drop protests or face the full wrath of the government. Raila, in his statement, revealed that one of the conditions to end the protests was to drop all cases related to the demonstrations.

He further added that at no particular time did Azimio’s top leadership advocate for the destruction of property.
