Nairobi police commander Japheth Koome said the roads which he termed as "red zones" will be blocked from as early as 6 am.

The roads affected will be Mombasa Road, Uhuru Highway, Museum Hill and Aga Khan areas, Wangare Maathai road and Thika Superhighway all the way to the Kasarani stadium venue.

"Anybody causing trouble along the red zones will be dealt with. Nothing will affect the security of heads of state," Koome said.

The police boss stated that there would be no compromise on matters security on Tuesday.

He further said that the police was not aware of any other event on Tuesday apart from the President's swearing-in ceremony.

"You must notify the station commander of where the procession will start. Nobody has notified any of the station commanders about any other function on Tuesday. If anybody does not involve police and wants to break the law that person should know we will deal firmly with such cases accordingly," Koome declared.

NASA led by their leader Raila Odinga have announced that they will hold a major memorial service at Jacaranda grounds in Embakasi, Nairobi on Tuesday to pray with the families of those killed by police.

Odinga 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.
