Interior CS Prof Kithure Kindiki says the Ministry of Education has been advised that learning may resume in Nairobi, Mombasa, and Kisumu Counties after a security review by his ministry gave a nod to the re-opening of schools temporarily closed in the three counties due to the ongoing Opposition demonstrations.

In a statement on Wednesday evening, CS Kindiki explained the rest of the country was calm on Wednesday, except for isolated cases of hooliganism and breach of peace in a few spots in Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Migori, Homabay, Siaya, and Nakuru counties,  as well as Wote and Emali towns, and commended the police for maintaining law and order throughout the day.

“The government commends the exemplary work of law enforcement agencies who remained on
duty for long hours in order to ensure that criminals do not disrupt public order. Overall, the Police acted professionally and with restraint in the management of the provocative situations that arose in the course of the day,” the statement reads in part.

The Interior boss noted security agencies remain alert throughout and will increase their operational capabilities tomorrow and in the days ahead, to ensure that normalcy is maintained and the country does not slide into anarchy amidst the anti-government protests.

Data from the ministry indicate more than 300 people have been arrested today across the country and will be charged with various crimes, including looting, malicious damage of property, arson, robbery with violence, assaulting law enforcement officers among other crimes.
