"I Just Saw Youth Throwing Stones on Me" ODM Party Leader Raila Recounts Soy Attack

August presidential hopeful Raila Odinga’s entourage to the funeral of the late Mzee Jackson Kibor was attacked as he left the venue early on Friday evening.

Raila’s key ally Junet Mohammed told the press that they had barely left the late Uasin Gishu farmer’s Kabenes home when they were attacked at the gate by rowdy youths.

The attack took place in early evening and fe minutes after Kibor was lowered to the grave.

The ODM Party leader skipped the main burial service but went at Kibor’s home at around six late in the evening, going to the homestead to pay his last respect to Mzee Jackson Kibor.

The situation worsened as highly marauding youths thronged the home of Kibor prompting the local politicians to remove Raila from the scene.

This comes when Police in Uasin Gishu County have arrested 14 suspects over the Friday attack on ODM leader Raila Odinga’s entourage in Kebenes, Soy Constituency.

The former Prime minister Raila Odinga said the threat came in the form of youth; mobilized, armed and paid to cause mayhem and disorder, destroy property and even take away lives in a bid to create political zones in the country.

Raila said his mistake was to attend the burial of his long time friend Jackson Kibor.
