"The government should compensate all families who have lost their loved ones because they did not deserve to die while exercising their rights," he said.

16 BODIES

The Nasa leader urged his supporters to remain steadfast in their quest for electoral justice, adding that they do not recognise the November 28 swearing-in of President Uhuru Kenyatta for the second term.

"We don't recognise the swearing-in that took place because it was based on an election that we also don't recognize,” he said,

“The will of the people was expressed on August 8 and that is it.”

Mr Odinga has insisted that he won the August 8 presidential poll and accuses the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) of rigging him out.

He alleges that IEBC allowed manipulation of figures during result transmission to give Mr Kenyatta an undeserved victory.

IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati has denied and dismissed the rigging claim.

After the prayers, a total of 16 bodies were removed from the mortuary and ferried to various destinations for burial.

Majority of the victims were from Siaya, Mr Odinga’s home county, and Kisumu County— a bedrock of his support.

Each family was given Sh50,000 to help with burial arrangements.
