“Court orders are not pieces of paper, it is the law. The slide to anarchy, confusion, and impunity starts when we do not respect the rule of law. I want to say for the avoidance of doubt, there are no more orders from above. Orders from above were stopped by the new constitution,” stated Ruto.

“Every public servant will be held personally accountable if they do not respect the rule of law. All of us must respect the rule of law and we must respect all arms of government. Anything short of that will be sliding us back to anarchy,” he continued.
