• The President spoke on Monday at State House after presiding over the swearing-in of Shadrack Mose as Solicitor General.
• He spoke just as Azimio leader Raila Odinga left Serena Hotel in a convoy and headed to the streets where his supporters had been engaging police officers since morning.
President William Ruto has reaffirmed that he will not allow the country to degenerate into lawlessness on his watch.
In an apparent reference to the ongoing Azimio mass demonstrations, the President said no one is above the law even as they exercise their constitutional rights.
"Nothing outside the law is going to be part of what we do as a nation because allowing ourselves to operate outside the law is actually condoning impunity," he said.
The President spoke on Monday at State House after presiding over the swearing-in of Shadrack Mose as Solicitor General.
The President spoke just as Azimio leader Raila Odinga left Serena Hotel in a convoy and headed to the streets where his supporters had been engaging police officers in running battles since early morning.
Raila and those that believe in his ideologies are pushing for the institution of changes in how the Kenya Kwanza government is running the country.
They want the process of selecting new IEBC commissioners done afresh, the cost of living lowered and for the President to remove punitive taxes among other grievances.
Ruto said those who feel aggrieved with any issues have a right to express their displeasure with the status quo but must seek redress through a legally permitted path.
He said going the slippery route of employing lawlessness could end badly for the country.
"It could end anywhere so I want to encourage us as the people of Kenya to respect the law because it's made for all of us and if there are any sections of the Constitution that we are unhappy about, there is a process for its amendment or change," Ruto said.
