Using the allegorical novella by George Orwell, Animal Farm, Deputy President William Ruto has accused the government of treating other people more equal than others. He has accused the National Police Service of frustrating him and being selective in the application of the law.
Reacting to the stringent security measures that saw convoys deployed to stop him from holding public gatherings, the DP said it was the responsibility of the police to serve all Kenyans equally irrespective of ethnic, political, and social status in the society.
The measures were issued through a public order act endorsed and ratified by the Cabinet.
“It is unfortunate that police cordoned off the venues of Kakamega church functions last weekend while allowing others to go on uninterrupted, “said Ruto.
The DP was talking about an event that saw ODM leader Raila Odinga has freely host hundreds of elders from the Kikuyu community at his Bondo home in Siaya.
He expressed his displeasure at the conduct of the police officers whom he accused of bias.
Ruto and his Tanga Tanga allies have cried foul over the latest incident where police cordoned off a church in Mumias, where they had been scheduled to preside over an event.
The Deputy President made the remarks Monday, at his Sugoi home in Uasin Gishu County, when he hosted church leaders from 50 different denominations drawn from Luo Nyanza.
“Let’s not turn Kenya into an Animal Farm, where all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. All Kenyans must be served equally irrespective of who is leaning to which direction politically. Law must be applied equally not selectively,” said Dr. Ruto
