Raila condemns Ndii’s arrest, says it is an attempt to intimidate the opposition
Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga has condemned the jubilee administration following Sunday’s arrest of David Ndii, the National Supper Alliance (NASA) strategist.
Odinga said Ndii was whisked away to undisclosed police station. He added that the police conducted to a search in their hotel rooms before arresting Ndii’s wife together with Odinga’s daughter Winnie.
Speaking during a press briefing in Kisumu Monday, Odinga termed the arrest as aimed at intimidating the opposition but this will not deter NASA from pushing for the electoral reforms.
Ndii was arrested while holidaying with his family at Diani, Mombasa amid protests by his wife who has since appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta to demonstrate that he is still the same gentleman who asked her to come and serve her country as an ICT guru.
Odinga said they have so far buried 20 people killed by the police after they went to receive him on his return to the country from the United States of America (USA) and during peaceful demonstrations in Nairobi.
He added that more than 20 other police brutality victims were yet to be laid to rest next weekend.
The NASA principal said he visited Kisumu to advise elected leaders to work together with the Executive for quality service delivery to the electorate.
Odinga asked diplomats to speak out on electoral reforms and police brutality through which several victims have lost their lives.
