Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Amollo Odinga has alleged an assassination attempt today, 20th March 2023 during his anti-government demonstrations in Pipeline, Nairobi.
Raila adressing the media in Karen after the demonstration, he says that the police shot his car leaving 7 live bullets that were being directed to him.
“We condemn in the strongest terms possible what has happened today. Today is a very sad day in the history of this country. This shows that we’re degenerating into the colonial stage, where lives of Africans did not matter at all, because there’s no reason why police should use this kind of force against unarmed citizens who are merely exercising their democratic rights,”he said.
“My own car was hit 7 times with live bullets, and the direction of the bullets were all aimed at me. These people have been threatening and blackmailing us, unfortunately the friends of this country are not helping. Look at the statement released by some ambassador based here, you would think that they live in a different country; they’re actually adding fuel to this conflict, instead of being independent and neutral arbiters”.
He also added that it was unfortunate that also the media is also being targeted. This is because on Monday and today some journalists have been injured.
“We also had information that they were planning to attack Uhuru’s farm, business, and residences” he added.
He also said that the Independent Electral and Boundaries Commission( IEBC) servers must be opened and an audit done to clear all doubts during elections.
He also added that the 4 sucked IEBC commissioners and the former vice chair , Juliana Cherera must be reinstated.
