Raila takes action after government withdrew his bodyguards

NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga has divulged what President Uhuru Kenyatta did before his bodyguards were withdrawn..

During an interview with a local daily on Tuesday evening at his residential place in Nairobi, Radar company security guards were spotted at Odinga's Karen home after the withdrawal of his bodygaurds.

The former Prime Minister disclosed that the government was planning to harm him adding that it was the reason his guards were recalled.

"I have a good reason to believe they want to do harm to us. And rather than trying to do physical harm to us, they should just arrest us and take us to prison."

"These are unilateral decisions, which I think are made by the President because it is only the President who can order the withdrawal of a former Prime Minister's security. They want to cripple my campaigns because the President fears that if we are able to campaign properly, then he has no chance against us," Odinga was quoted by the Star.

However, Police spokesman Charles Owino refuted claims that Odinga's security had been withdrawn. He said that the number of his bodyguards was only scaled down.

Odinag's security detail was withdrawn just a day to the planned protests by NASA against the IEBC.

The Opposition leader had announced that they would peacefully demonstrate from Tuesday in a bid to force IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba to resign, who has maintained that he won't quit.

The planned demos kicked off in different parts of the country on Tuesday but the NASA principals did not attend.
