– Babu said only NASA leader Raila Odinga can call off the demos
Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has trashed the ban by Acting Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i regarding demonstrations within the CBD.
Prior TUKO.co.ke reports indicate that the government had banned anti-IEBC demonstrations within Nairobi,Kisumu and Mombasa Central Business Districts.
Acting Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i also said NASA Chief Executive Officer Norman Magaya will be charged after the Opposition supporters looted a Nairobi restaurant and destroyed vehicles.
The move elicited some reactions from a number of ODM party affiliates, including MP Babu Owino, who is popular for his unending support for the Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
Through his twitter account, the Babu Owino argues that only the NASA leader had the power to call off demonstrations.
"Only Raila Odinga has the power to call off our anti IEBC demos. Any other communication should be treated as statistics." He wrote on Twitter.
He further dismissed any directive from the government as “statistics”.
NASA demonstrations have been taken a notch higher by Raila Odinga supporters after the withdrawal of the NASA leader from the Presidential election.
Siaya Senator James Orengo had issued an announcement that demonstrations would be taking place on a daily basis to intensify for their push to flush out some IEBC officials.
