Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has warned against acts of violence even as the national dialogue goes on between the government and the opposition.

In a statement, Kindiki said violence should never be an option in case the two teams disagree on any issue.

"The peace and tranquillity of our Country is a singular and collective responsibility for all citizens, their political, religious, or community differences notwithstanding," Kindiki stated.

"The political class has embarked on dialogue, and as they convene to deliberate on various issues, violence should never be part of the equation. Should the leaders agree or disagree on any issue, no one will be allowed to terrorise or blackmail the people of Kenya through violence and destruction of public and private property."

This comes even as the technical committees formed by Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition party and Kenya Kwanza are scheduled to meet over the weekend to prepare the agenda for the dialogue team.

The National Dialogue teams co-chaired by Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka and National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wah are set to meet on Monday, August 14, 2023.

Kindiki on taxes

Speaking at Abundant New Life Church in Nyeri Town, Kindiki called on Kenyans to support President William Ruto in raising the country's own revenue to avoid debts.

"The 3rd President of Kenya Mzee Mwai Kibaki demonstrated that our country has the capacity to develop and grow its economy without having to rely on the taxes of other countries. We must support His Excellency President William Ruto in rebuilding our country's economy through efficient revenue collection, prudent management of resources, and invest in policies and development projects that will spur economic growth from the grassroots and create opportunities for millions of people, especially the youth," he added.
