Odinga 25.04.2016

“Police in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, fired tear gas into a crowd of opposition leaders and supporters who were marching to demand the dissolution of the country’s electoral commission ahead of next year’s election. Over the weekend, Odinga and other leading politicians demanded the disbandment of the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC), and vowed to storm its offices to eject its commissioners. Mr Odinga rejected the 2013 election result that brought President Uhuru Kenyatta into power, alleging massive fraud” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).
