CS Kindiki warns politicians to stay away from Shakahola forest

Interior CS Kithure Kindiki has told opposition leader Raila Odinga to keep off from Shakahola forest as it remains a restricted area for security operations. The CS said they have gazetted Shakahola as a scene of crime and have also restricted even the media to take images of the exhumation of bodies as the government will be sued for violating human rights.

“We cannot mix national security with politics, we understand politicians and they play a key role in our democracy, but we cannot mix national security and politics,” Kindiki said.

On Friday, Raila Odinga was blocked by security officers on his way into the Shakahola forest. According to CS Kindiki, a government gazette notices only people with a crucial duty to carry in the forest, which up to now has claimed 112 innocent lives, will be allowed. He condemned Raila Odinga for accusing the government of interfering with the religion, saying the government has no plan whatsoever to fight the church, but it’s just eliminating those fake religious leaders who have taken the pulpit to torment lives.

“Surely those who say the government is fighting the church do not know what they are talking about. How can one hit people who refuse to fast and kill them, and he calls himself a man of God?” he said.

He also defended the government, saying they have nothing to hide from the public, and they will broadcast the whole truth once they get to the bottom of the whole matter.

The CS vowed to deal with the criminals who will be found guilty and pay them the most painful punishment in the book of law when found guilty. He said those who will try to interfere with the operations will be dealt with despite their political status.

The CS was speaking at Cottolengo Mission Hospital Chaaria in Imenti Central constituency in Meru County during the support event to support disabled children. He was accompanied by Tigania East MP Mpuru Aburi, Meru County assembly speaker Ayubu Bundi, among other leaders.
