“We want to condemn Mr. Matiang’i for claiming that we cannot enjoy our rights to picket and demonstrate. It is the responsibility of the police to provide security during demonstrations held within the law. From here, we’ll be headed to the CBD for anti-IEBC demos, we have notified the police about these demonstrations,” Orengo vowed during the press conference.
