Siaya Senator with Machakos Senator, Johnston Muthama

Siaya Senator James Orengo on Tuesday demanded the government come clean on a plot against Raila and his four co-principals using police officers.

The NASA legal advisor said that the President will be held responsible should anything happen to Raila or any one of the principals.

He spoke at a presser at NASA’s Capitol Hill offices, Nairobi.

He accused the government of using some police trainees to trail the NASA pentagon especially during campaigns.

He demanded Uhuru, Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery and Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet tell Kenyans the “purpose and mission” of 60 AP officers who have been undergoing military training in Katulo, Wajir, under the leadership of a Lt Kimunya and deputised by an unnamed officer from the NIS.

“Yesterday [Monday], eight of the 60 were released from the fields in Wajir to Nairobi and relocated to Kiambu on unspecified mission,” Orengo said.

“We are particularly concerned that the hurried release of the eight officers to Kiambu on unspecified mission coincided with the release of the programme of Odinga’s visit to Kiambu today [yesterday],” Orengo said.

The officers have allegedly been undergoing “suspicious training” for two months and have been using police vehicles. They allegedly started training at Kahawa Barracks, Kiambu, before relocating to Wajir.

Orengo said the officers have been made to surrender their official identification documents and ordered to operate as ordinary civilians, while using equipment from the police force.

“This makes their mission more sinister. We know from past experience the state has used trained security officers to undertake missions such as participating in ethnic violence, while masquerading as ordinary civilians,” he said.
