Police Block Raila’s Motorcade in Narok [VIDEO]

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga had a run in with law enforcement officers after the police blocked his motorcade.

Raila was headed to a meet-the-people tour in Narok Town when the incident, which occurred on Sunday, took place.

In the clip, the former prime minister is heard protesting that the highway should be open to all users without police interruptions.

Below is the video:

“I am the former Prime Minister of this country. You cannot block us because of our procession. What is this? You cannot block me, this is a highway,” the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, who was in the company of former Defence Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, lamented.

Shortly after the confrontation, Raila was allowed to proceed to Narok Town where he attracted a large crowd.

We wrapped up our day in Narok County with a fantastic meet-and-greet session to say hi to the wonderful people of Narok Town,” he later said in a statement.

During the tour, Raila hit out at Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli over his dalliance with the ruling government.

He argued that Atwoli had abandoned his watchdog role to defend Kenyans and was instead dining with the President and his government.

“The labour movement has gone to bed with this regime. Kenyan workers are now on their own,” he told the crowd.

“As the leader of the labour union, you should be at the forefront of defending the interests of the workers. We are now doing your job.”

Earlier, the former prime minister attended a prayer service and thanksgiving ceremony in Narok Town, Narok County.
