The excessive use of force by the government during the Bonchari by-elections has been widely condemned by ODM party and Deputy President Dr William Ruto's camp.

ODM wrote a letter to the IEBC boss Wafula Chebukati complaining on the heavy police presence in the area and intimidation from state agencies which, was unlawful and unconstitutional.

"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," Raila Odinga remarked.

According to a report by Daily nation, Ruto allied leaders led by Belgut Mp Nelson Koech have started collecting signatures to impeach the interior security cabinet secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i.

He said that they have approached senior leaders within ODM to get their support in the looming Impeachment.

Uhuru Kenyatta's government fierce critic Oscar Sudi said that they believe that ODM will support the move to impeach Matiang'i since they fell victims of police brutality in the Bonchari by-elections.

"ODM were celebrating when the police were unleashed on us. Now they, too, were subjected to police brutality in Bonchari. They understand that it is a problem we must address," Mr Sudi said on Wednesday.
