Raila to sue Nairobi police boss Adamson Bungei locally and internationally
Addressing the media on Tuesday, Odinga said they would file charges locally and internationally against Mr. Bungei, who was previously the Baringo County police commander.
The opposition leader accused the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) of remaining silent while police were allegedly being instructed to use excessive force against innocent protesters.
"We have come to the conclusion that our police shall never change unless we make them change. We have put a team of legal and security experts to examine the conduct and orders given by the police commanders to the officers on the streets that led to the brutality meted out yesterday. we shall institute legal action against individual officers who give such orders that led to the mayhem," said Odinga.
"In this regard, we decry the silence of IPOA and KNHCR of Ruto's misuse of police. We are going for individual responsibility and culpability against officers who acted against the Constitution. So far we have a case to file individual charges against Mr Adamson Bungeri. We will press these charges locally and internationally," added Odinga.
Odinga described the protests held yesterday in Nairobi and other parts of the country as “immensely successful" adding that beginning next week, the demos would be held on Mondays and Thursdays.
"This struggle is just starting we are not looking back. We will not be intimidated. No retreat no surrender," insisted the opposition chief.
