ODM MP's house raided

The ordeal lasted for hours at night.

Accompanied by seemingly vandalised house photos, Dr Oundo decried of a poor security accorded to him, even as he confirmed that his family was not affected by the attack.

He, however, confirmed loss of property on unknown value, after hours of trauma from the gun-touting thugs.

“Armed robbery can be scaring and traumatizing. Luckily, the family is safe after a night ordeal in the hands of gun trotting thugs.  Stolen goods can be replaced but lost lives cannot.

Thanks God that there were no injuries,” the MP said in a tweet.

The attack on the MP’s house comes barely a month after the government withdrew security details for nearly all Opposition politicians.

“Denying MPs security is to set them for murder and armed robbery. It is unlikely that we will be silenced. By the Grace of God, the family is safe,” he added.

Raila swearing-in

Equally, security officers attached to NASA principals, Raila, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula were also withdrawn reportedly on the orders of the National Security Advisory Committee because they were set to engage in an “illegal activity.”

Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo, claimed that all security officers attached to them had been redeployed, which he warned, in a tweet, could be counterproductive in the event an MP is killed, citing the cost of holding by-elections and securing them. He added they would not be intimidated.

The revelation came hours after Kalonzo, in a Whatsapp clip, said the reason why they failed to turn up at Uhuru Park is because they were left stranded after all their security detail was withdrawn.

He said he only left his home at 11am when media crews turned up. Only Raila took the “oath” with Kalonzo saying he is still ready to also do so.
