President William Ruto’s allies, including his Permanent Secretaries are among those who have criticized his administration over the ongoing wave of abductions in the country.

Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Korir Sing’oei is among those who turned against the authorities following the abduction of former Nandi Hills Member of Parliament Alfred Keter on Sunday.

“There is a procedure for effecting an arrest. This is not one of them. We must resist the temptation to adopt extra-legal means even in the pursuit of legitimate objectives,”Kipkorir noted.

Former Machakos Senator Johnston Muthama who at one point also served as UDA Chairman also voiced his concern with the manner in which Keter was seized.

“Today, the nation has witnessed the abduction of former Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter in Nairobi, another incident in a series of proliferating gangland-type kidnappings. This alarming trend, including the abduction of numerous young people that we have consistently and unequivocally condemned, heralds a grim future for the rule of law that Kenya prides itself on.”KANU chairman Gideon Moi noted.

Keter was seized in Nairobi’s Lavington area by unknown persons believed to be police officers.
