Ruto asks police not to be selective in application of law

Deputy President William Ruto has asked police not to be selective in application of law.

Dr. Ruto said it was the responsibility of police to serve all Kenyans equally irrespective of ethnic, political and social status in the society.

The Deputy President said it was unfortunate that police were disrupting some meetings while allowing others to go on uninterrupted.

“It is unfortunate that police cordoned off the venues of Kakamega church functions last weekend while allowing others to go on uninterrupted, “said Dr. Ruto.

He said the 2010 Constitution empowered police to be independent while discharging their duties, adding that it was wrong for the law enforcement officers to apply the law selectively.

The Deputy President made the remarks at his Sugoi home in Uasin Gishu County, when he hosted church leaders from 50 different denominations drawn from Luo Nyanza.
