How Raila kept his diary under wraps, outsmarted police again

Raila also criticised Monday's vandalism of one of his business premises and the invasion of land owned by former President Uhuru Kenyatta's family.

While addressing a gathering of opposition demonstrators at the Kamukunji Grounds in Kibra on March 27, Raila termed the two attacks "criminal and foolish", alleging that they had been conducted by criminals hired by senior government officials.

Kamkunji was the opposition's last stop in a series of protest marches by demonstrators that began in Kawangware and ended up in Kibra.

Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party leaders questioned the intentions behind the attacks, saying it betrayed the ill intentions President William Ruto's administration allegedly harbours against the opposition.

"Sending criminals to my business is childish. But we will not relent," Raila said, hinting at an escalation of the bi-weekly protests, urging his supporters to await his directions.

Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua warned of the consequences of harming their leaders.

"If you harm Raila, the whole country will come for you," said Karua, making reference to the government.

"We now know who is interested in peaceful demonstrations and who is only interested in chaos," Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna said.
