Shock as CS KINDIKI bans heckling of RUTO – See what he will do to you if you are caught disrupting the president’s rally going forward?

 Monday, March 18, 2024 – If you were planning to heckle and disrupt President William Ruto’s political rallies, you better think twice because it won’t be a laughing matter anymore.

This is after Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki issued a directive spelling out that going forward, Kenyans caught disrupting political rallies will be arrested and arraigned in court. 

This followed two incidents over the weekend where hecklers disrupted Ruto’s rallies in Bomet and Kericho counties. 

The hecklers, it was reported, were hired hands instructed to express their dissatisfaction with local leaders.

While holding a consultative forum with the Kericho County Security and Intelligence Committee, Kindiki stated that going forward such behaviour would not be tolerated. 

He read malice in the heckling, noting that there was a specific group of high-ranking individuals who were facilitating the now-frequent disruption of political rallies. 

As such, he directed Kericho County Commissioner Gabriel Kitiyo and his team to clamp down on the individuals behind the incidents. 

“The security team is tasked to reign in on incidents of disorderly conduct in political meetings, conclude investigations and apprehend the organisers, financiers and perpetrators of hooliganism in the County, regardless of their political or social standing,” Kindiki directed. 

Ruto had earlier warned Bomet residents that he would not tolerate such chaos in his meetings.

He argued that the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) was a party of order and the heckling was an unacceptable trend.
