Raila Odinga blocks Ghanaian Facebooker over 'insulting' comment

The comment read, "Congratulations H.E Raila "Buffoon" Odinga, "president" of "little Kenya", the man who boycotted an election and won without contesting".

The CS warned that those associated with the treasonous ceremony would regret it as the government would deal with them decisively within the law. "Nasa is concerned with the recent spate of police clampdown on Opposition leaders and whose security details have been withdrawn and their firearm licences revoked", said source privy to the ongoing talks.

"They released him at 10 with a stern warning not to come back to serve the orders, so I have come here myself, but I am being been denied access", he said by phone from outside the authority's office.

No one was hurt.

National Super Alliance (NASA) leaders have cautioned Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i to stop intimidating them.

While Miguna lost in his bid to become governor of Nairobi a year ago and holds no official position within NASA, he is the self-styled "general" of the party's "National Resistance Movement" wing which is tasked with implementing a threatened programme of civil disobedience and boycotts.

Opposition supporters will gather at the Central Police Station in downtown Nairobi on Tuesday to protest the arrests, KTN News reported on its website, citing unidentified lawmakers.

Most of their statements have focussed on the brief detention of three opposition politicians who took part in Odinga's ceremony, which occurred peacefully after the government withdrew police from the site.

Matiangi claimed that the media's complicity in Tuesday's ceremony would have led to the deaths of thousands of Kenyans. "Next week, before Tuesday, Raila Odinga will tell Kenya and the whole world the way forward", said Orengo.

Dr Eze, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency on Thursday said, Odinga's "self inauguration" was quite unfortunate, because Kenya had gone through some legal battle leading up to their 2017 general election, becoming the first African country that had its presidential election overturned by the Supreme Court.

On February 1, the Kenyan High Court ordered that the TV stations be allowed to resume transmissions, pending a full hearing of various petitions.

In August, the first election results, which showed Kenyatta as the victor over Odinga, were annulled by the Supreme Court, which said the vote was not credible. They argued that when in power former president Moi did not entertain jokers and those who joked with politics were forced to run away in self-exile.

Henry Maina, regional director of media rights group Article 19, called the shutdown of the TV stations a violation of constitutionally guaranteed media freedoms and the "lowest moment for media freedom in a decade".
