Police in Western Kenya have stopped a meeting that was being organised by a section of leaders who are opposed to the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
This comes just a day after police officers allowed the organises of the meeting led by Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula to go ahead with the public rally that was to take place on Saturday this week.
The meeting was to take place at Nabongo Sports Ground in Mumias, Kakamega County.
“This is to notify you that this office has cancelled your permit to carry out the above exercise purportedly scheduled to take place on January 18, 2020 due to security reasons,” a letter signed by Albert Chebii the Officer Commanding Station (OCS) Mumias police station read in part.
A tough talking Mr Chebii also asked the organisers of the meeting to fully comply to the directives or else anyone action will be taken on anyone who will act contrary.
The leaders had also secured a permit to hold demonstrations on the current state of Mumias Sugar Company.
Last week, Mr Wetangula and Mr Musalia had announced that they will lead over 40 leaders in the meeting.
