We will respect ruling on Uhuru Park rally – Nkaiserry

Interior Secretary Joseph Nkaiserry has said the government will abide by a High Court ruling that allowed the Opposition to hold a Madaraka Day rally at Uhuru Park.

In his ruling on Tuesday, High Court Judge George Odunga had directed police to ensure that there is security during the rally.

“We will respect the court’s decision on the Cord’s rally at the Uhuru Park. We will provide security to them and all other Kenyans,” Mr Nkaiserry told a media briefing on Tuesday at Harambee House.

The CS turnaround comes a day after the National Security Advisory Council  had banned the planned Madaraka Day rally on security grounds.

The council had also ordered the closure of the Nyayo National Stadium on Wednesday.
