Kindiki assured Kenyans that the demonstration witnessed in the country on Wednesday has been contained and normalcy has returned.
“The public is hereby informed that the wave of hooliganism, disruption of order, and lawlessness that began on Wednesday has been fully contained and the Country has returned to normalcy,” said Kindiki
Security apparatus are expected to offer a much better experience than what was done on Wednesday despite reports that the opposition plans demonstrations on Friday too.
“Security agencies remain fully engaged with the situation in the Country and will build on the experience of the last two days to make sure that law enforcement achieves even better results tomorrow, in the wake of reports that organizers of the violent protests have incited the public to continue engaging in unlawful protests and violence tomorrow,” said Kindiki
