Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho has urged politicians and Kenyans to respect President Uhuru Kenyatta or face the rule of law.

Kibicho said he will not let people disrespect President Kenyatta.

"Let us discipline them if we have to. Let them cry if they want to," he said

The PS added that security agencies are dedicated to serving the President and Kenyans at large.

Kibicho made his remarks while in Kiambu County on official duty.

His remarks come as the legislators allied to Deputy President William Ruto accused his boss, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i, of being selective when it comes to providing security.

Ruto allies have bashed Matiang'i and his ICT colleague Joe Mucheru for allegedly backing ODM leader Raila Odinga in his 2022 presidential ambitions.
