Esipisu: Police will deal with unlawful protests

State House spokesperson Manoah Esipisu has said that the police will not tolerate anyone who is endangering the lives of others.

During the first post-election briefing, Mr Esipisu said in the last few days, there has been some protests, some which were peaceful and are lawful exercises of a constitutional right and will be respected and offered protection by Police.

However, he noted that others were violent protests, in which property has been damaged, and lives endangered.


“The violent protests are unlawful, so let me be perfectly clear here: the Police will not tolerate breaches of the peace; instead, they will protect the lives and property of Kenyans; and they will restore law and order,” Mr Esipisu during a press briefing at State House, Nairobi.

He added that, there are peaceful and constitutional means by which to address any grievances and cautioned the youth against engaging violence.

“It is time to showcase to the world that Kenya is moving forward towards the attainment of its development objectives. We remain one nation, under God, united by the unity of purpose; which is to see this country surpass its socio-economic potential for the positive advancement of all its citizens,” he said.
