All of this will be done to prevent Azimio protestors from causing huge damage and from reaching the mansion of the head of state.
This is according to reliable information that the opposition leader, Raila Odinga, plans on leading his men to State House following a public assembly at the Jivanjee Gardens.
Top police commanders warned The Star that the Central Business District will be blocked by police officers from the GSU, the Administration Police's Rapid Deployment Unit, and normal police officers to prevent entry to the city core.
To prevent Raila and his gang from swarming the State House compound, the General Service Unit (GSU) will be stationed outside while security officers from the RECCE division defend the building from the inside.
"The protestors may hold their demonstrations outside the central business district." There would be no entry to the Central Business District and vicinity of the State House, according to a senior police official who was privy to the information.
Yesterday, the Meru Council of Elders warned Odinga against any attempt to raid the State House, calling the plans a recipe for carnage and an attempt to illegally depose a duly elected head of state.
A day earlier, religious leaders from Thika, led by Bishop David Ngari, nicknamed Gakuyo, issued a similar warning to Mr. Odinga.
