Kenya: Raila Odinga Pledges to End Extra-Judicial Killings

Kenya: Raila Odinga pledges to end extra-judicial killings if elected president (News Central TV)

Raila Odinga, a presidential candidate for the Azimio-One Kenya alliance, campaigned in North Eastern Kenya and promised to put a stop to extrajudicial killings if elected.

However, during rallies, sibling rivalry amongst politicians running for different positions was on display.

After young people threw stones at the stage, local authorities including the previous governor of Garissa, Nathif Jamah, apologized to Raila’s team.

“A few people have been hired to disrupt our activities. The people of Garissa don’t throw stones. I offer my apologies,” said Jamah during a rally in Daadab.

“We have experienced a few challenges in our trip but we are undeterred. Youths should be restrained,” said Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka.

Garissa Senator Abdi Yusuf also condemned the violence and blamed it on Azimio rivals.

Raila said that his government will end the forced disappearances of young people in the area.

“There have been needless killings of our young people by police. They have turned themselves into judges and executioners. This will come to an end. Everybody should be treated equally,” said Raila.

His running mate Martha Karua predicted a huge victory for Azimio on the August 9 General Election.

“This election will be a repeat of the 2002 election when Kenyans came together and elected Mwai Kibaki president. I see Raila garnering more votes because even those of us from Mt Kenya, who have been electing one of our own, have thrown our weight behind him,” she said in Daadab.
