DP Gachagua responds to Raila’s ICC letter, issues directives to IG Koome.
DP Gachagua responds to Raila’s ICC letter; Yesterday, Raila’s lawyer wrote to the international criminal court, demanding an inquiry into the political state of Kenya.
The lawyer stated that the government was responsible for extrajudicial killings, looting at the northlands ranch, denying people their democratic right of demonstration among other demands.
While addressing a political gathering at Nyandarua, the second in command countered that Raila and his allies are the one who should be sent to the Hague because of the destruction of property and loss of lives.
He stated,”In fact, the people who should be taken to ICC are those Azimio characters who have destroyed the life and property of the people of Kenya.”
The deputy president highlighted that no one will intimidate him in-fact, the inspector general of police should do his work of apprehending people who loot and destroy property.
He stated,” I see they want to intimidate the I, but I ask you to continue doing your job professionally. Had they not come to the streets, there would have been no issue between the police and the demonstrators. So let them keep their people at home.”
“IG if those people come to the street, do your job in accordance with the Constitution of Kenya. Protect the life and property of Kenyans,” the DP added.
Gachagua outlined that nothing Raila says will move them into a handshake.
He stated,”We are not like the previous government that agreed to the handshake, we are stronger.”
