President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned that stern action would be taken against anyone threatening the country’s peace and stability.
In an apparent reference to calls by the opposition for secession and plans to swear in Nasa leader Raila Odinga as ‘people’s president’, the Head of State on Thursday said those who “cross the line” will not be tolerated.
“We will not entertain any language, any action that threaten our territorial integrity,” A hard-hitting Kenyatta told governors and their deputies on their first meeting at Diani Reef Hotel in Kwale County.
“We can have dialogue either individually or collectively but one thing is clear that there is a line and if you cross it then the law will deal with you.”
The opposition has vowed not to recognise President Kenyatta’s re-election in the October 26 vote.
