Roads leading to Supreme Court set for closure ahead of verdict.

All roads leading to the Supreme Court are set for closure on Monday 5, 2022, ahead of the much-awaited ruling by the seven-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Martha Koome on the presidential petition.

In a statement, Acting Inspector General Noor Gabow stated that this will ensure safety of Kenyans.
“We wish to advise the general public to avoid gathering at the Supreme Court during the Ruling or congregating in public gatherings but follow the proceedings from the comfort of their homes.Access to the Supreme Court shall be limited to the public, and all roads leading to the court premises shall remain closed. Traffic police officers shall be deployed adequately to direct traffic around the Court facility,” read the statement in part.

Gabow assured Kenyans of peace regardless of the judgement adding that security personnel had been deployed across the country and in places marked as hotspot areas to monitor and ensure peace prevails.

“We, therefore, take this opportunity to appeal to Kenyans to remain calm and peaceful. We further assure all Kenyans and the general public of their enhanced personal security and that of their property including loved ones.As the National Police Service, we have taken all the necessary steps and measures to enhance security in all parts of the country, including all critical infrastructure. The public should not therefore panic and migrate from their homes or ordinary places of residence in fear and anticipation of chaos,” continued the statement.
