Opposition leader Raila Odinga accused Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and National Assembly Majority leader Kimani Ichungwa of hatching a scheme aimed at disrupting his planned protests.
Speaking on Thursday, March 23, at his Capitol Hill office in Nairobi, the former Prime Minister sensationally claimed that the two held a meeting on Tuesday, March 21, a night at DP Gachagua’s Karen home which was also attended by Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro.
Raila further revealed that the meeting invited several youths to the meeting and instructed them to counter-demonstrators during the upcoming Monday protests.
“We have very authentic information that on Tuesday, March 21, evening, Rigathi Gachagua convened a meeting at his residence in Karen, and in attendance were Kimani Ichung’wah and Ndindi Nyoro. They invited youth from different parts of the country to that meeting.
“That meeting turned out to be a strategy session to plan to counter the demonstrators on Monday, March 27. The plan, according to the information we have, is that these youth are going to be given uniforms similar to those of the MDD, our movement. Then they will mix with our youth and accompany them throughout the demonstrations,” Raila said.
“At the end of it, they are going to be armed with stones, knives, Pangas and even guns and they will shoot, stone and their aim is to kill over 1000 people,” he disclosed.
This Raila disclosed will see the trio file a case where they will accuse him of being the mastermind behind the bloodshed and the loss of lives witnessed during his demonstrations.
“They will then go and make a case that there is bloodshed and try to send the leaders of Azimio to International Criminal Court (ICC),” Raila said.
