- Kisumu County Governor, Prof Anyang Nyong’o, has blasted Interior Cabinet Secretary, Prof Kithure Kindiki, following the teargassing of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s supporters while celebrating his 79th birthday on Sunday.

In a statement to Kenyans, the Governor said that it was shameful for the police to treat people that way yet they had not contravened the law in any manner.

He noted that Kenyans have been celebrating birthdays, noting that Raila was also celebrated in Kisumu peacefully.

“Why was Nairobi different?”

“What Crime did the people of Nairobi commit?” he posed.

“It is cowardly, shameful and unconstitutional for the police to attack and injure harmless people who had gathered in a street in Nairobi to celebrate their leader,” he further said.

Inspector General of Police Japheth Koome has also said the officers who teargassed Raila Odinga’s supporters will face disciplinary action.
