As political tensions and 2022 realignments continue to take center stage in Western politics, a keen eye has been set on the way security personnel are trying to enforce the Ministry of Health directives pertaining social gatherings.

In Kakamega County two separate meetings were held, one involving the Tanga tanga team led by close Deputy President William Ruto allies was scheduled to be held at area MP Malulu Injendi’s home and another one led by Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala in Makunga for food dsitribution purposes.

The two meetings on Saturday were treated diferently by police officers, with a meeting at Malava drawing the wrath of security officers while the one at Makunga went on smoothly, indicating that officers were keen to ensure it went on smoothly regardless of the governemmt’s directives on social distancing.

ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi has been vocal, saying security officers are being used to enforce the social distancing rule, insinuating that if you dance to the government’s tune you can hold gatherings and meetings unlike the ones who are not in government, “I want to urge the Health CS and the Interior CS to ensure that all Ministry of Health directives are adhered to by everyone regardless of political affiliations. If we stop any gatherings let it be applicable to all but if we cannot observe that then let’s open the meetings to everyone.”
