Raila announces changes to NASA's Tuesday Rally

Raila announced changes to the NASA rally set to coincide with Uhuru's swearing-in.

While speaking during a fundraiser on Friday evening, Odinga said that NASA will hold a major memorial service at Jacaranda grounds in Embakasi, Nairobi on Tuesday to pray with the families of those killed by police.

It had been earlier announced that NASA would hold the memorial service at the historic Uhuru Park grounds on that day.

Odinga said the police should have arrested and detained him at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport when he returned from the US last week instead of killing innocent Kenyans.

He blasted Kenyatta for going ahead with the inauguration event which will cost Sh300 million saying that it was wrong for the Jubilee administration to hold such celebrations at a time when the country is mourning the brutal murder of innocent Kenyans.

“It will be crazy for any government to arrange for any ceremony when the country is mourning.

"On Tuesday it will not be a rally but a major memorial service to pray with the families to ensure that their loved ones get a descent send off,” Odinga said.

On Saturday, the NASA coalition will be at Machakos where they are set to hold their inaugural mini People’s Assembly.

The venue will be at the Maanzoni Lodge where NASA's National Resistance Movement parliamentary wing will hold their Mini Council of the People’s Assembly.

While on Monday, the NASA leaders will hold a memorial service for the victims killed in protests in separate venues across the country.
