“The deliberate and conspicuous absence of the police as this incident happened points to an unacceptable complicity and choreography for which the local police leadership must come out clean,”  read the statement from ODM as seen by The Star.

Mr Ong’wen asked the police to probe the incident, calling upon them to protect people’s property during the demos.

“This is more critical than their obsession with throwing tear gas and meting ruthless brutality on innocent and law-abiding citizens,” he stated.

Rowdy youths,believed to be NASA supporters broke into Tumaini Supermarket and stole items worth an unknown value during the anti-IEBC demos in Kisumu on Friday.
