Protestors invade Kenyatta, Odinga property in a counter-mass action


Protestors were caught on camera looting and vandalizing property belonging to Former President Kenyatta and Raila Odinga in Azimio’s mass action on Monday.


Both Former president Uhuru Kenyatta and Azimio leader Raila Odinga suffered huge losses after a group of protestors invaded and vandalized their properties, during Monday’s mass demonstrations.

In what seemed to be a counter-protest, an armed group of looters invaded the Northlands farm, property owned by the former Head of State Uhuru Kenyatta in Kamakis, along the Eastern bypass.

The armed group is said to have accessed the over 11 hectares of land through a section of the fence, while the guards looked on as the scene unfolded.

The gang was heavily armed with deadly weapons, among them machetes and clubs. They went in, chanting slogans affiliated with the Mau Mau, claiming that they too should be land owners just like the Kenyatta family.

The gang was seen looting a significant number of sheep even as they went on a tree-cutting spree without any care. A section of the farm was set on fire, destroying a vast land of Eucalyptus trees.

Azimio’s party leader Raila Odinga also suffered the same fate at the hands of vandals who were seen invading East Africa Spectre company, a gas company linked to him in Industrial Area, Nairobi. The rowdy crowd was caught on camera throwing stones at the property, causing destructions of unknown value.

There was no police intervention in either of the properties’ vandalism incidents which lead to a lot of raising questions as to the motive behind the action.

These two incidents come only a day after Raila on Sunday had released a statement on his Twitter handle claiming that the government was planning to cause chaos during the mass demonstrations held on Monday.

According to Raila, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua had organized a fully equipped armory and two command centers that were to be used to cause mayhem during Azimio’s mass action. Aside from that, he claimed that several youths were recruited to disrupt the demonstrations in Western and Nyanza regions, both of which are Raila’s strongholds.
