Kenya: rule of law 'should reign supreme'

Eric Mutua, the chairman of the Law Society of Kenya, said today that peace must be restored and those guilty of crimes must be seen to be punished.


Mr Mutua claimed that arsonists had set fire to several houses Kuria East District within Migori County following disputes over the weekend, reports Codewit.
‘It should not be perceived that pre and post-election chaos will always go unpunished. Courts must set precedents before the March 4 elections,’ Mr Mutua said. ‘The rule of law should reign supreme ahead of the much awaited General Election.’
