Raila Odinga

NASA leader Raila Odinga wants justice for supporters killed by police on Friday, 17 November during his ‘grand welcome.’

The police brutality towards the ‘unarmed civilians,’ he says was unprecedented and unnecessary. The six people were exercising their right to assembly.

The opposition leader wants President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto to make sure the eight get state funerals and for the two to take responsibility for the chaos witnessed yesterday (Friday) in Nairobi.

The ODM party leader says that the Jubilee regime is intentionally creating an atmosphere of fear in which the Supreme Court will make its ruling.

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.’
