The newspaper reported that during the rally, Mr Odinga, his co-principals Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula reiterated their call for daily demos starting this week.

The protesters were marching on Moi Avenue on their way to the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) when police lobbed teargas at them.

It is clear by now that the infamous “Electoral Commission” of Kenya is the cause of all the ‘fraud’ [or respectfully called error!!!] in the election process. As such, it goes without saying that the same commission can NOT be trusted to follow legal process of the Election. Indeed, logic follows, it will repeat its goal of paving the way for the election of the present candidate in power. In a nut shell, the present president is intended to win by any means available, even if it takes horrendous loss of Life of innocent citizens of Kenya. ONE DICTATOR IS WORTH A FEW MILLION AFRICANS, IN AFRICA. THE END.
P.S. Reminder: The horror of the re-election date is just ten days away, on THURSDAY, 26 October 2017, in KENYA, EAST AFRICA. African Diplomatic Silence from the African Union is tantamount to permitting the slaughter of innocent African people.
