Raila calls on police to arrest Lang'at attackers

31 October 2014, 12:15 William Korir

Nairobi - ODM leader Raila Odinga says that police should arrest those involved in the beating of Executive Director Magerer Lang'at.

Lang'at was attacked Thursday during a parliamentary group meeting by a group of Members of County Assemblies MCA's and youth from Nairobi County for allegedly being a Jubilee coalition mole.

The attack at the party's Orange House headquarters was done in full view of Raila and fellow CORD coalition principal Kalonzo Musyoka.

Raila has called on police to ensure they bring those that caused the attacks to book and charge them for the melee caused.

" I call upon the police and other law enforcement arms of government to take up the matter and ensure justice is done, he said Friday.

He also said that the party will hole internal investigations into the matter.

" The party's National Executive Committee will also meet next week to deliberate further on the matter, he added.

Further, he called on supporters to exercise calm and tolerance towards others, even if they have differing views.

" I encourage all members to respect democratic principles and contribute to a peaceful, just and democratic society," he finished.

Lang'at was accused by his attackers of calling for Odinga's retirement and stating that ODM as a party is dead and needs to be rejuvenated.

He has yet to comment on the attack.
