Raila Odinga says ICC should intervene
  • NASA leader Raila Odinga has reminded Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto that the Opposition could involve Hague in the ongoing mayhem.
  • He accused the government of being the masterminds behind the chaos in the country.
  • He made this remarks on his tour to Baba Dogo where several people had been killed in mysterious incidents.

National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga toured Baba Dogo in Ruaraka Constituency on Sunday, November 19 where 11 people were allegedly killed in mysterious incidents. He also visited The Nairobi hospital where Mathare MP Anthony Oluoch was being tended to after being injured in the Sunday morning tussle.

Raila had gone to console the families of those who lost their lives, amidst heavy police presence.

During his tour, Raila accused the government of being behind the killings. He said that it was evident that certain communities were being targeted.

“These killings are a product of careful planning and it is clear that they were executed in a manner to suggest that particular ethnic communities were targeted,” he explained.

The killings came barely two days after NASA supporters clashed with the police as they attempted to access Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. They had gone to welcome Raila back after his 10 day trip to the United States.

Supporters engaged the police on November 17 as they escorted Raila’s motorcade from the airport towards the CBD. Several people lost their lives as lots of property was destroyed. NASA pointed fingers to the police for using live bullets during the march.

Following this, Raila asked President Uhuru to call the chaos off, reminding him that NASA could involve International Criminal Court. 

He said that what the country is experiencing matches what the country saw in 2007. The 2007 violence saw several Kenyan leaders summoned to the Netherlands based Court. President Uhuru and his Deputy Ruto were among those who were summoned to the ICC following the violence.

Raila also called upon the media and clergymen to speak out against wrongdoings without bias. "The leadership of the church needs to speak now. We are shocked to see the church silenced, trying to equate wrong and right".
