The Opposition has now rescheduled the arrival of its leader Raila Odinga to Friday to allow for a  ‘dress-rehearsal’ rally on Thursday.

LOOTING

He gave lectures at the Wilson Centre and the Centre for Security and International Studies, with former US ambassadors to Kenya William Bellamy and Johnnie Carson in attendance

“Kenya’s is not just an electoral crisis triggered by a third straight stolen election. Let me be blunt: Kenya is hurtling towards an outright dictatorship.

"The Jubilee government has looted every institution that they could to achieve their goal of controlling the State, or their self-declared goal of running up to 2032,” Mr Odinga and asked the US to adopt a more robust and direct engagement with Nairobi.

JET BACK

He will today fly to London, the United Kingdom, for similar engagements.
