National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate Raila Odinga has visited former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama and Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria who are currently being held at Pangani Police Station in Nairobi.
Kuria and Muthama were arrested earlier in the day over alleged hate speech.
Addressing the media at the police station, the former Prime Minister claimed that the Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet, ordered the arrest of the two leaders after receiving instructions from President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“Uhuru Kenyatta has given instructions. But I would like Uhuru Kenyatta to play by the rules. You are a presidential candidate, I’m a presidential candidate, let us face the people. Do not intimidate my supporters to cripple my campaign,” Raila noted.
The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader also cautioned President Uhuru against intimidating and threatening members of the opposition ahead of the October 17th repeat election.
