The president who was speaking during today’s International Women’s Day celebrations described the incident in the viral video of a lady being assaulted as disheartening to see, the President said that he had instructed law enforcement officers to clamp down on rogue operators and ensure the perpetrators of the heinous act are brought to book.
“We are going to reregister you all again and we must make sure that we safeguard women. I have instructed the law enforcement officers to use the instruments within the law to punish these perpetrators,” stated President Kenyatta.
“There should never be a repeat of what we saw.”
The President similarly warned politicians against riding on the crackdown as a campaign agenda in political rallies, saying that the government will support the operators on condition that they are disciplined.
