"This Must Stop" Raila Odinga Fumes After Bonchari and Juja By-elections

ODM leader Raila Odinga has expressed disappointed in the way police officers were used in Tuesday's By-Election.

Taking to his Twitter handle Odinga said;

"What we have witnessed in the by-elections in Bonchari and Juja is an abuse of police powers and an arrogant display of IMPUNITY by a few overzealous and bellicose government functionaries.

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. Security forces exist 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!" Odinga said in a short statement.

Police officers have been accused of using too much force and overstepping their mandate in an attempt to subvert the will of the people.
