Mboto Ivan Harry. Opposition chief Raila Odinga finds himself counting heavy losses after his vehicles suffered significant damage during the ongoing anti-government demonstrations. The demonstrations, spearheaded by Odinga himself, commenced at Kamkunji grounds in Nairobi and successfully managed to overcome police barriers, granting them access to the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD). However, the aftermath reveals a trail of destruction, particularly inflicted upon Odinga’s vehicles.
Online photos circulating widely depict Odinga’s vehicles in a state of disarray, bearing the brunt of the protests. The vehicles’ windscreens are shattered, side mirrors broken, rear screens damaged, and rear lights dysfunctional, among other defects. These images serve as a testament to the intensity and chaos that unfolded during the demonstrations.
Raila Odinga, undoubtedly, must be lamenting the loss incurred as his vehicles were subjected to significant destruction. The cost of repairing or replacing these damaged vehicles is likely to be substantial, adding to the financial burden that Odinga and his opposition party will have to bear.
While the protesters may have achieved their aim of accessing the CBD, the collateral damage to Odinga’s vehicles will undoubtedly leave a bitter taste. This turn of events may serve as a reminder of the risks and consequences associated with organizing such demonstrations, urging political leaders to weigh the potential outcomes more carefully in the future.
