How Police Bravely Cornered And Arrested 14 Suspects In Raila's Chopper & Convoy Stoning Saga

So far, 14 people have been arrested in connection with the Friday attack in Uasin Gishu County that targeted ODM leader Raila Odinga's chopper and vehicles in his convoy. When unruly teenagers began pelting his chopper with stones, the former premier and his allies had just arrived in Soy for the burial of the late "Men's Conference chairman," Mzee Jackson Kibor.

Uasin Gishu County Commissioner Stephen Kihara told the press in Eldoret on Saturday that the accused are now assisting police with their investigations. "We moved about all night and were able to apprehend 14 young people who were involved in throwing stones yesterday," he stated.

With the help of the apprehended suspects, Kihara expressed confidence that the police would be able to identify the perpetrators of the attack, which he described as unfortunate and isolated. While urging the youth to work for peace during this election season, Kihara also emphasized that all politicians have the constitutional right to campaign in any part of the country without fear of threats or intimidation.

Meanwhile, the Governor of Uasin Gishu, Jackson Mandago, condemned the attack while distancing himself from charges made by certain Odinga allies that he had coordinated the attack. Junet Mohammed, a member of Parliament from Suna East, and Babu Owino, a member of Parliament from Embakasi East, were singled out for making the assertions.
