Uhuru asks Raila Odinga to hold peaceful protests

President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned National Super Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odiga against fuelling violence through demonstrations.

Speaking in Chuka town, Tharaka-Nithi County, on Monday, Mr Kenyatta said Mr Odinga will be in trouble if the protests pushing for reforms of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission result to violence.

“If your team touches even a banana of a woman on the street, [you] will be met by the full force of the law,” Mr Kenyatta said.


He said the Opposition has the right to hold demonstrations but they must be peaceful.

Nevertheless, he criticised his October 26 opponent for focusing his energies on protests instead of campaigning.

The Jubilee presidential candidate said he will trounce his competitor in the rerun.


Deputy President William Ruto further told the coalition to allow the IEBC conduct its business independently.

He equally expressed confidence of being victorious.

“We defeated you in the annulled August 8 polls and we will do the same on October 26,” Mr Ruto said.

During August poll, politicians moved voters from homes to other regions to boost numbers.
