Raila said that the act is abuse of powers and arrogant display of impunity by a few overzealous and bellicose government officials.
In today's morning Facebook post by the ODM leader, he said that an election process is an opportunity for the voters to express their will at the ballot and not an avenue to pursue imaginary and short-legged political interests.

He added that security forces exists to serve the people and not the interests of those out to conduct political experiments.
"The peaceful co-existence post-2018 must NOT be taken for granted by some rogue elements wanting to confuse the HANDSHAKE for an excuse to ERODE our hard-earned liberties! This must STOP," reads part of the post by Raila Odinga.
Raila Odinga's sentiment comes after Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) suspended tallying process for Juja constituency member of parliament by-election following a disruption of the process by individuals alleged to be under Kiambu Governor Mr James Nyoro.

According to the IEBC, counting will resume upon restoration of normalcy in the center, in order to protect the safety of IEBC staff, election materials and to ensure integrity of the election process.
