The inspector general of police, Japheth Koome, today released a statement regarding the protest that was held yesterday.
Raila Odinga however, retorted saying the government downplayed them but Kenyans know what they are doing .
He stated,”Hiyo ni upuzi na ujinga…si wao ndio walisema wajinga waliisha.”

“They want to say Kenya is short of stupid people, that Kenyans are stupid pretending not to be aware,” he added.
IG Koome on the other hand, condemned this acts and said investigations have been launched to know who was culpable.
