The National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga said on Friday that he thought President Uhuru Kenyatta would receive him at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) after his week-long trip to the United States and United Kingdom nations.

Addressing his supporters at Upperhill in Nairobi, Mr Odinga said the Head of State, instead, “chose to spend time with his deputy, William Ruto”.

Mr Odinga further criticised the police for repulsing his supporters, who had gone to receive him at the JKIA Friday.

 

“I appreciate and thank you (supporters) for turning out in large numbers to receive me at the airport. My anger has been triggered by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto. I have returned home from abroad, and President Uhuru Kenyatta knew where I was. It is not like he did not know. Instead of welcoming me appropriately into the country, he sends the police to teargas me and my supporters. That is cruel,” said Mr Odinga.

“I thought (President) Uhuru will come to receive me at the airport. Uhuru refused, and chose to spend time with his deputy, William Ruto,” added Mr Odinga.

The Opposition chief further said that the American people have pledged to support his push for “political change” in the country.

“Receive greetings from the American people. They are praying for you, and have assured me that change in the country is something they will support,” said Mr Odinga.
