Following the events of 30th January 2018 at Uhuru Park by National Super Alliance, (NASA), led by Raila Odinga and other leaders, the Government wishes to state as follows;

  1. What was witnessed at Uhuru Park was a well- choreographed attempt to subvert or overthrow the legally constituted Government of the Republic of Kenya.
  2. The Government was and is aware of the role of some elements in the media fraternity who participated in furtherance of this illegal act. Their complicity would have led to thousands of deaths of innocent Kenyans due to the buildup of the incitement that was witnessed in early hours of the morning of 30th January 2018.
  3. Media owners and all relevant actors had been given a full security situation brief well ahead of the illegal activities of NASA. Unfortunately, some media houses chose to disregard this advice, their own code of ethics, self-regulation, and the moral responsibility of every Kenyan to safeguard the security of their fellow citizens.
  4. Accordingly, the Government took a decision to shut down the concerned media houses, until further notice, as it launches a full investigation into the serious breach of security.
  5. Further, the Government has commenced full investigation around the purported ‘swearing-in’ of Raila Odinga. The investigations will extend to co-conspirators and facilitators. Upon completion of these investigations, appropriate legal action will be taken in accordance with the Laws of Kenya. Additionally, the Government will prefer appropriate administrative measures on a need by need basis.
  6. The Government of the Republic of Kenya reiterates that it will continue to perform its cardinal responsibility of protecting lives and properties of all Kenyans regardless of their political affiliations. Further, the Government will continue to guarantee a conducive and enabling environment for businesses to thrive. The Government remains committed to the rolling out of development programmes in every part of the country.
  7. In conclusion, the Government takes this opportunity to thank Kenyans especially the residents of Nairobi for their resilience and peaceful conduct despite spirited efforts by NASA and specifically the proscribed armed militia hitherto operating under the banner of NRM, to incite them into tribal divisions, violence and possible massacre.
