Kenya: Raila Odinga tells supporters to stay at home on Monday

Kenya

After losing the presidential election, Kenya’s opposition leader Raila Odinga has called on his supporters to stay at home on Monday as he prepares to reveal the next move on Tuesday.

During an address to his supporters Odinga vowed to ensure that newly elected president Uhuru Kenyatta is removed from power.

“Today I don’t want to say a lot, I will address you the day after tomorrow (Tuesday), but here today, I am telling Jubilee that they have spilled innocent people’s blood, they will pay for it,” opposition leader Raila Odinga told supporters.

Sources close to the opposition leader say he is planning to call for peaceful demonstrations.

Sunday’s address to supporters was the first since the release of the election results.

Odinga supporters believe the election was rigged and also blame electoral fraud for their candidate’s loss in 2007 and 2013.
