NASA supremo Raila Odinga has landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport after being away for 10 days for political engagements in the US and UK.
He was scheduled to arrive on Friday afternoon from United Kingdom but was reportedly in Dubai, hence the morning arrival.
He gave a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) where he called out foreign envoys and castigated them for supporting President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election.
He also accused the Jubilee government of trying to hold on to power till 2022 when Deputy President William Ruto will vie for presidency.
The former PM traveled to the UK for similar engagements but meetings were allegedly cancelled forcing him to head to Dubai.
A grand welcome was planned by the NASA leaders but has been met with a lot of opposition from the police who have blocked JKIA.
Police are currently engaging rowdy supporters in running battles near the airport where a police officer and three motorists have been injured and rushed ti hospital.
NRM leaders had called on a one million man match to JKIA to welcome the Opposition leader followed by a rally at the Uhuru park. NASA Governors were allegedly under instruction to ferry at least 600 people to Nairobi for the grand welcome.
