- The National Police Service say NASA plan of grand reception for Raila Odinga at JKIA will compromise airport security
- The police cautioned politicians against mobilizing people to go to the airport
The National Police Service has issued a stern warning to the politicians mobilizing crowds for the grand reception of National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition leader Raila Odinga at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
Miguna Miguna on his twitter page on 12 November welcomed people to the airport to receive Raila Odinga
“ANNOUNCEMENT: The NRM and Coalition NASA invite millions of patriots to walk to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and welcome the people's president Raila Odinga to Kenya from the USA on Thursday 16 November 2017! Take over Nairobi on that day!” Miguna posted.
Raila Odinga is expected to arrive in Kenya on Thursday 16 November from the United States where he had gone to give his speech concerning Kenya elections at the Centre for Strategic and International (CSIS) headquarters, Washington DC.
In a press statement released by the Police, mobilizing huge crowds to the airport will risk the safety of air operators, passengers and other airport users.
“Those without valid reasons to enter the facility will be hence denied entry. Therefore, those making plans for that day are advised accordingly,” read part of the statement.
Raila Odinga went to kick off important meetings with members of the congress so as to push for electoral reforms in light of the current political situation in Kenya.
