National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, has reportedly hired private bodyguards to protect him after the Government withdrew his security.
Last week Raila Odinga woke to a rude shock, he found all his bodyguards had been withdrawn and recalled to Vigilance House.
Following the move, Raila has reportedly hired security guards from a Nairobi firm to guard him and also guard his Nairobi and Bondo home. Meanwhile, acting CS Interior and Coordination, Fred Matiang’I, has said that the State will not reinstate Odinga’s security because ‘they misuse the officers.’
“I heard one politician say that we either return the police officers or they call for mass action.”
“They can proceed and call for mass action because that position is not going to change,” Matiangi said
“Why should we give you 20 police officers to loiter from press conference to press conference, from hotel to hotel, when they are needed elsewhere?” Matiang’i posed.
