Nairobi–Over 300 Youth are currently at Raila’s Karen home to offer him free security hours after his bodyguards were withdrawn by Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet.
According to a family member, a group of 200 has been tasked with manning the main gate and the fence as about 130 will be guarding Raila’s offices at the Capital hill. 20 others volunteer to provide escort to the opposition leader with their own personal cars.
“We are ready to guard our President without any pay, Raila Odinga is safer in people’s hands than in Jubilee police. We have dispatched about 300 gentlemen to go and provide security at Raila’s home. Meanwhile our own cars with at least 20 security agents will be used to escort Baba wherever he will be going.” said Mr. Phelix Ochola.
“Sovereign power belongs to the people. Uhuru can keep his boys and enjoy the little power he has while it lasts.” he added.
