Joho's chilling message to UhuRuto

Joho sent the message to Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto, hours after the US warned Kenya.

The Governor warned the Jubilee’s top brass led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto that they would be held accountable for the atrocities being perpetuated by police.

“The brutal cruel hand of the Jubilee Government has taken the lives of our supporters at a rally,” Joho said in a statement through his Twitter account.

He added: “I want to tell Jubilee that before the almighty God and that of the constitution of Kenya, you shall be held accountable for your sins and atrocities against the Kenyan people,” Joho said in a statement.

On Tuesday, Geoffrey Mutinda was allegedly shot and killed by police while playing in hood’s balcony of their first floor apartment in Pipeline area that had experienced protests earlier in the day.

Police had blocked access to Jacaranda Grounds where NASA had planned a memorial service for victims of police brutality, which would have ran parallel to Uhuru’s swearing-in fete. They were later tear-gassed and prevented from reaching the venue.

Residents claimed the boy was shot by men they said were Administration Police officers from a nearby post, who were riding a motorcycle and not in uniform but known to locals.

It is not clear why they were shooting, according to the family, the area was calm at the time

“There were no demonstrations or political rallies here. We do not know why the police shot. They were riding on a motorcycle and shooting indiscriminately,” Mr Mutuku, the deceased’s father said

Joho’s message adds a voice to the statement by the United States to the National Police Service, warning it against using excessive force “against Kenyans who are exercising their democratic rights.”

In a statement, Heather Nauert, US’ State Department spokesperson on Tuesday condemned the recent use of force by the police to disperse protestors.

“We urge security forces to refrain from the use of unnecessary force against citizens exercising their democratic rights,” Heather said in a statement.
