Today from Hiiraan Online:
Tight security ahead of Supreme Court ruling
Saturday, March 30, 2013
Police have heightened security in Nairobi as the country awaits the Supreme Court’s ruling expected in the next few hours.
All roads leading to the Supreme Court have been closed.
A contingent of armed GSU, administration and regular police have sealed the junctions of Wabera and Mama Ngina streets, City Hall Way, Parliament Road, and Taifa Road.
However, traders at the Maasai market situated at the Supreme Court’s parking lot have been allowed to sell their wares.
Nairobi deputy police boss Moses Ombati visited the market Saturday morning and assured the traders that their security was guaranteed.
He warned that police officers had been deployed at the market to deal with those who may take advantage of the situation to cause chaos.
On Friday, Inspector-General of Police David Kimaiyo vowed a crackdown on illegal demonstrations ahead of the landmark ruling.
Mr Kimaiyo said crowds would not be allowed to mill around the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court will deliver a historic judgment that will either clear the way for the swearing in of Uhuru Kenyatta as Kenya’s fourth President, a run-off pitting Mr Kenyatta and Prime Minister Raila Odinga, or a fresh election.
