The press secretary of Raila Odinga’s presidential marketing campaign secretariat Dennis Onsarigo condemned the act and promised to observe as much as make certain it does not show up once more.

“I don’t have any concept approximately the prevalence but if it came about its miles unacceptable. 

I will comply with up,” he stated in a cellphone name conversation with NTV information editor Ben Kitili.

NTV’s anchor Mark Masai while reporting at the information diagnosed a man who was wearing a blue cap in the footage as the person who claimed he became a security member of ODM and ordered NTV reporters to leave.

 

Azimio la Umoja movement

Mr. Odinga, who’s currently within the UK for a week, is anticipated to popularise the Azimio la Angeles Umoja motion among Kenyans residing there as well as other occasions.

The incident at the Azimio rally got here a day after newshounds were briefly locked out of Deputy President William Ruto’s occasion where he became being crowned as the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) presidential flagbearer.

The reporters have been barred for about an hour from protecting the delegates’ resolutions on the Kasarani stadium auditorium.

While protecting the flow, Kenya Kwanza’s virtual strategist Dennis Itumbi stated that the delegates on the convention were predicted to have a proper consultation to bypass the resolutions.

Countering the move, Mr. Odinga’s presidential campaign spokesperson Makau Mutua stated the incident implied secrecy on the part of UDA and amounted to denying Kenyans the possibility to study their choices about the party.
