- He said anyone who wants electoral disputes solved without following the set constitutional process is only making a mockery of the country's democracy.
- Kingi said failure to follow the law could take the country to a dark place and chaos.
Senate Speaker Amason Kingi has said that nothing done outside of the law, can bring about results that are within the law.
According to the speaker, the Constitution outlines the procedure to be taken to solve election grievances that may arise after a presidential election.
He said anyone who wants electoral disputes solved without following the set constitutional process is only making a mockery of the country's democracy.
"Our Constitution has very elaborate provisions on how presidential election disputes are to be prosecuted and settled. Anybody calling for resolution of such disputes outside the Constitution is making a mockery of our Constitution and our democratic values," Kingi said.
He said that every leader is expected to abide by the law at all times.
Kingi said failure to follow the law could take the country to a dark place and chaos.
"The basic minimum demanded of us as leaders is to observe the rule of law no matter the temptations/ provocations, lest we plunge this country into chaos and anarchy. Nothing unlawfully done can yield lawful results," he said.
The Senate Speaker's remarks came after the highly charged opposition protests led by Azimio leader Raila Odinga.
The protests held in parts of Nairobi and Kisumu saw running battles and arrests become the order of the day on Monday.
The Azimio la Umoja allied politicians and their supporters faced off with the police across various parts of the city, as they tried to gain access to the Central Business District.
Raila had called for a 'holiday' to allow his supporters to express their frustrations peacefully.
Among the demands by the opposition is that President William Ruto lowers the cost of living, the prices of fuel and food. They also call for electoral reforms.
