Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Prof. Kithure Kindiki has issued a stern warning to persons planning to partake in the Azimio la Umoja-led anti-government demonstrations slated for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week.

In a statement to newsrooms on Tuesday, the Interior CS noted that the State has 'deployed all available resources' to ensure that scenes of violence, lawlessness and destruction witnessed during the demos last week do not reoccur.

"Anyone planning to unleash violence on Kenyans is hereby warned to cease and desist," said Kindiki.

"Those who doubt the Government's resolve to prevent further loss of life, injury, destruction of private and public property, and degeneration of the Country into anarchy have a date with law enforcement agencies tomorrow, Thursday, Friday or any other day."

Kindiki added that the government has mobilised law enforcement personnel to quell the planned protests since intelligence reports have confirmed that the organisers of the said demos 'plan to yet again unleash terror and fresh violence on Kenyans'.

"There have been media and public reports that the same organizers and architects of last week’s violence, which resulted in death and injury of innocent Kenyans, massive plunder of private property, arson on Government buildings and disruption of businesses, tomorrow, Thursday and Friday. They have also threatened to turn the wave of violence into a weekly and perhaps a daily affair," said Kindiki.

"Intelligence reports confirm these media and public reports as accurate and verifiable."

The Interior CS however urged Kenyans to go about their normal businesses despite the planned protests.

"Members of the public are advised to go about their daily businesses normally as law enforcement agencies ensure their safety and security. Those who wish to express their political rights should do so within the law and without violating the rights of others," said Kindiki.
