The National Super Alliance (NASA) principals had no kind words for the police as they demanded to know why the Member of Parliament (MP) was behind bars, calling for his immediate release.
Odinga termed the arrest “an intimidation of NASA lawmakers” adding that “the State is using police to intimidate the opposition and we (NASA) will not allow that to happen”.
The opposition bosses also met the Parklands police chief and demanded to know why the MP was arrested.
Earlier on, University of Nairobi took to the streets, blocking roads and burning tyres in support of the legislator, forcing police to lob teargas canisters to disperse them.
