0 252

CORD PROTESTSThe High Court has declined to stop Cord protests but has however directed IG Joseph Boinnet to provide security and ensure public safety .

Justice Joseph Onguto has ruled that police are obliged to ensure law and order is maintained.

Regarding the demonstrations, Onguto said Cord leaders are within their rights to picket or demonstrate for the removal of IEBC commissioners.

The Justice said the constitution allows people to picket so as to air opinions which may be controversial but must be respected.

But he said the removal ought to be done as the constitution stipulates as the IEBC is an independent body.

He also said the protests should not take place on private property.
