Raila offers Aladwa moral support

23 October 2015, 18:05 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga offered support to former Nairobi Mayor George Aladwa after he was arrested due to hate speech allegations despite the nature of offence.

Despite being an offence that many see as jail-able and highly disrespectful, the CORD leader was at the Kilimani Police Station to support Aladwa, a move that brought serious ridicule to the former Prime Minister on social media.

He was seen consulting with the then arrested Aladwa and later on with other leaders.

Aladwa was arrested by Police Friday for incitement and hate speech during Tuesday's Mashujaa Day celebrations in Kibera.

He allegedly motioned that there would be death and tears if Raila did not win the 2017 elections.

He has since retracted his statement, stating that he meant that the election win would bring tears of joy to CORD supporters.

He has since been locked up at the Kamukunji Police Station.

Political analyst Michael Njenga says that Raila's move is bold.

" It is a bold move and one that could cost the CORD leader his reputation for in other words condoning hate speech," he said.

" In the case of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, you have yet to see Uhuru comment on the matter or be seen to support Kuria, which is the right thing to do as it can be seen to be condoning it," he added.

There was no comment from Raila whilst at the Police station.
