“I don’t have jurisdiction to comment on that. The Attorney General was clear….The AG is the chief adviser to the government and we work for the government. The AG has advised us on what the law provides for,” Owino told The Star.

According to The Star, police will not disrupt the event won’t allow what is unlawful:”if it is a lawful meeting we will have no problem. We only take action in accordance with the law“.

Mr Owino,however, declined to share details of terms on which Raila will be allowed to hold a public meeting without a swearing-in.

The Spokesman further said that the police don’t anticipate that Raila will commit an offence, or do anything unusual, because being a statesman,they expect he will act within the law.

Two plans are underway- stopping Raila from holding the ceremony or allowing it but disrupting it immediately it turns out to be a swearing-in.

According to Mr Owino ,Raila’s statement on the swearing-in was a political rhetoric and police have no obligation to respond as their primary role is to enforce the law.

“Our duty is only to watch and see if he carries out the activity of being sworn-in. If he does, we will follow the law. If the law says he be charged for treason, then we can only arrest and charge him and leave the rest to courts. He is not above the law. If he does what is right, we will have no problem.”

“Our duty is to enforce the law and regulations. If Raila wants to do anything within the law there is no problem but if what he wants to do is illegal, then we don’t give authority.”
