Stop shooting and killing children - Tuju tells NASA

He has claimed that the shootings only serve to "give Raila a political sympathy".

Tuju, who took to his Twitter page hours after the killing of a 7-year-old Geoffrey Mutinda in Nairobi’s Pipeline Estate by unknown hit men who vanished on a motorcycle, said that the maiming of Kenyans is out to give Mr Odinga a better negotiating script to the Western countries.

“I beseech NRM to stop shooting kids and blaming the police to gain Raila some political sympathy like in the Maidan script,” Mr Tuju tweeted on Wednesday adding that he had evidence of the atrocities, which behooved the police of the murder.

On Tuesday, there were reports that an Administrative Police (AP) officer who was deployed to cordon off Jacaranda Grounds where Nasa leader Raila Odinga was supposed to address a rally parallel to Uhuru Kenyatta’s swearing-in fete, shot in the head and killed the boy.

The sentiments by Tuju comes barely a day after the United States in a congratulatory statement to Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto, condemned the brutal use of force by the police to silence “Kenyans who are exercising their democratic rights.”

Pockets of violence have been witnessed in Kenya since the August 8 polls, with several human rights groups accounting for deaths of dozens of Kenyans.
