President Ruto has broken his silence following the violent protests witnessed in the country on Monday.
Ruto, who is currently on an official State visit to Germany, stated that impunity will not be tolerated and that all Kenyans must submit to the rule of law.
"That is what makes us equal. Nobody should trample on the rights of others," Ruto said in a statement.
The president further promised to ensure that everyone’s life, property, and business is protected.
"We have deliberately offered the police operational and financial independence to work. It is their duty to ensure that everyone adheres to the rule of law," he said.
Ruto was speaking on Tuesday in Berlin when he met Kenyans living and working in Germany.
On Tuesday, Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome said two police vehicles were destroyed and 23 officers injured during the demonstrations organized by the opposition party.
During the protests on Monday, police fired tear gas and used water cannons to disperse crowds of protestors who followed Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga's convoy as it snaked through the streets of Nairobi.
The protesters had defied a warning by the Inspector General of Police, who had declared the demonstrations "illegal" a day earlier.
The African Union (AU) Commission expressed deep concern over violent protests, which have resulted in the loss of life, damage of property, and the interruption of economic activities in Kenya.
AU Commission Chair Moussa Faki Mahamat on Tuesday urged all parties to exercise calm and engage in dialogue to address any differences that may exist in the supreme interest of national unity and reconciliation.
Ruto can not trusted with anything he says. He is just lying and you can never believe anything Ruto says! He is the architect of everything bad happening in Kenya today. He is corrupt, he is a thief, and he is everything bad for Kenya.
Actions speak louder that words. Did you protect the property of Muteshi in Eldoret and Uhuru in Ruiru?
'The president further promised to ensure that everyone’s life, property, and business is protected'.
Is this a new promise?If I were Ruto, I would be ashamed to talk like that.Promise is one thing Politicians never keep.
SAMOEI a.k.a. Toroitich Junior born again
Samoei was a vice president for ten years and campaigned for 5 years non-stop while neglecting his assignment as the deputy to the former president, finished his doctorate while receiving state security, salary, and now has the audacity to blame the same government is SURELY NOT FIT to be the president of Kenya.
He will be remembered as a liar, thief, land grabber, status-rapist (you remember the college student that he impregnated while still married), opportunist and the worst president in the entire history of Kenya.
