Saba Saba: Raila's car damaged in battle with anti-riot police
Odinga had convened a rally at Kamukunji Grounds where he rallied his supporters to kickstart an initiative he says is aimed at pushing President William Ruto and his government out of office.
After addressing the Kamukunji rally, Odinga called on his supporters to march to Central Park in the Nairobi CBD where he was set to make a further address.
The Odinga-led Azimio convoy would however be met with force by a heavily armed contingent of anti-riot police officers determined to ensure the thousands of protesters following the opposition leader do not make their way into the city centre.
Police had earlier issued a warning that the city centre was a no-go zone for the Saba Saba demonstrations.
During the melee, several vehicles on the opposition leader's convoy including his vehicle got their rear windows shattered.
The Azimio leaders were forced to scamper for safety and head to the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Foundation (JOOF) centre where the damage on the vehicles was inspected in front of the press.
Addressing journalists, Odinga claimed his vehicle was hit by a live bullet fired by police whom he claim were aiming for his life.
