Raila wants to be arrested to win sympathy votes, Government says

07 October 2016, 16:06 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga wants to be arrested in-order to win public sympathy, the government has said.

Government spokesman Eric Kiraithe said that CORD leader Odinga will not be arrested for remarks he made at a rally in Narok County last Saturday.

He branded his comments unfortunate.

“Of course the motive was to get himself arrested and justify a notion that the government of the day is suppressing the opposition,” Kiraithe told News24.

He said the opposition was disorganised and unlikely to present any meaningful political competition come the 2017 elections.

Kiraithe added that it was wrong for the Cord leader to ask people to carry weapons and chase electoral commissioners out of office even as the government was in the process of sending them home.

He said such utterances could spark violence similar to that of 2007/2008.

But Raila quickly denied so.

" I said the truth. That is what people are feeling on the ground. They want justice," he insisted.
