The government has launched a probe against NASA Presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga.

This is after Raila was accused of inciting his supporters to violence ahead of the upcoming general elections.

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DCI) Keriako Tobiko says his office, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) have started a joint probe and a report on the investigations is expected to be out next week.

While on a tour of Kajiado county; it is alleged that Raila asked the residents to protect their land and not sell them to ‘outsiders’; utterances that prompted Jubilee to ask the NCIC and DPP to have him investigated over hate speech.

Raila however dismissed the claims saying that he was statements were quoted of context.

“In the latest incident, the President has, out of the blues, accused Mr. Odinga of asking communities to return to their ancestral lands. Mr. Odinga has made no such utterances.The diversity of Mr. Odinga’s support base alone militate against him making such utterances. The President’s remarks are therefore far-fetched and smacks of desperation,” read part of the Raila’s statement sent through his aide.

While campaigning in Meru on Saturday, Raila said Jubilee only wants to seize political capital by misinterpreting his message to the Maasais.

He said the Jubilee government should realize it was time for them to leave office as NASA will beat them at the polls.
