The blood of the innocent Kenyans, he says is in Kenyatta’s hands.
He further castigated the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) for their lack of conclusive investigations in to the shooting of post election protests in opposition strongholds after Kenyatta was declared president.
Odinga, while speaking at the Okoa Kenya offices promised to make known the way forward in the coming week.
After his arrival from overseas, he pointed out that a third republic was in the making and no ‘amount of violence, intimidation and theft of elections will deter Kenyans from realizing their dreams of a government that has their popular mandate.’
But the police denied killing the six saying that they were lynched by rowdy NASA supporters.
