Opposition leader Raila Odinga claims there was an attempt on his life and that of Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka during their protests on Monday.
Addressing the press on Tuesday, Odinga said their cars were shot at by police officers as they made their way through Nairobi but the two were unharmed.
“There was an attempt on the lives of both Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka. Their cars were shot at but luckily, they were unharmed. We remain horrified and disgusted by the response of the police,” he said.
He criticized the response of the police, terming it excessive and unnecessary, especially at a time when the country is going through major security challenges.
“We were shocked that police could assemble so many personnel and so much equipment to combat peaceful protestors,” said Raila.
“That brutality witnessed yesterday does not belong in this country. It's more disgusting because the citizens were acting within the provisions of the constitution and had given notice in the intention to march in Nairobi. Its impunity at its worst. We were determined to confront it as they saw yesterday,” he added.
Odinga announced they have formed a team of security and legal experts to examine the conduct and orders given by police commanders to the officers deployed to the streets.
“We shall institute legal action against individual officers who give such orders that led to the mayhem,” he added.
In a press release on Tuesday, Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome said police were forced to use force during Monday’s demonstrations to prevent the protesters from accessing Nairobi and Kisumu central business districts.
Koome indicated that 25 people were arrested and seven officers injured in Nyanza while 24 officers were injured in Nairobi and 213 people were arrested.
Blah Blah Blah! If they wanted to assassinate you, bwana peoples conman, you would already be dead 🍖! I wish they wake up from their naps and finish the job! We love peace!!!!
If what Raila is saying is indeed true, Kenya is slowing plunging into possible chaos which will be far worse than those of 2007. If Raila is lying about the assassination attempts, he will only succeed in reinforcing the perception being voiced by UDA that he is a selfish self-seeking individual who will do anything in order to be president. Loose lips sink sinks.
How we wish the two mainly Raila can just sleep n don’t wake up.Majority of Kenyans we will b celebrating if the Raila the devil dies so this r not news.Gove is good news that he is Fucking dead.
UMEUA WENGI ATA UKIULIWA.Only Mortuary Raila’s fools can believe his nonsense.Hii kashia whose hobby is human slaughter and cannibalization doesn’t remember a police or ordinary marksman/sharpshooter/sniper can kill him at any angle if he/she targets him.Kenya will only change upon his demise.

So we'll put your activism on Kenyan Calendars to celebrate or mourn yearly" We F#&%K the Country gd...As those left out will be reading names of RIPs on concrete walls...this is your momeny!...DO IT!!..
The primary effort is to sabotage the Country, loot businesses, and create an environment that will get election losers to the government (handshake). Ok, they don't recognize the government, then they appoint their kids and siblings to positions in the same government. Though Kenya need a big change, and the current government, and the opposition do not understand. In other countries, billionaires and millionaires are employers, while hustlers are civil employees; unlike Kenya where billionaires are civilian employees and hustlers remain unemployed.
At 78 now, Jakom knows that he has no chance of waiting to 2027 general elections. He is simply too old and could even b 7 feet under by that time due to his age
While Joho is in the USA showing off his expensive winter jacket of $2300. Is he really a hard die or was just a ride for wealth ?
Why would anyone want to do that. It is not like you're alive anyway! You are in a delusional state going around barking like a mad dog atop a vehicle wearing fake military attire that you hope will make you a general. You're a bunch of wasted time. Anybody who benefits from deaths of innocent people out of his own deliberate act or omission, directly or indirectly, they are better of dead themselves.
The Nairobi Police Commender stated that the Monday protests were not lawful.But,RAO claims that they were.Who should we believe?
In this charged atmosphare,who knows what exactly happened.May be bullets where fired,but who knows at what.Obviously police are not going to say that ,yes they were trying to eliminate RAO,and Kalonzo.They might say that bullets were fired in that general direction at hooligans.A claim even if true RAO and company would not accept.So where does that leave us?
I believe that Ruto in the past,driven by brotherly christian love, extended an olive branch to RAO,but was rebuffed.Try again Dr...
As if adding fuel to fire, Gachagua,and Ruto have earned themselves huge amount of cash to by new cars.In light of what is driving these protestes,this is an illadvised move.The timing is horrible.I guess the media will be blamed for that. What a mess!
