Intelligence reports indicated there will be an attack in Likoni, Mtwapa but we want to warn those people trying to make Kenya ungovernable that they will not succeed,” he added. Mr. Ruto noted that the attempt by criminal elements and their collaborators to blackmail the government will fail miserably adding that the government will prevail no matter what the criminal elements do. “We will not accept a few people trying to make this country ungovernable, this country will defeat the criminals,” he emphasized. He reminded the Kenyans that just as the security agents contained and defeated attempts to cause mayhem in Mtwapa, Kisauni and Likoni they will also overcome these latest episode. The Tana River Governor Hussein Dadho asked wananchi in the area to report criminals to the authorities noting that the faceless enemy who was destabilizing the area must be defeated.
