It uses a photo and names those allegedly arrésted as Collins Omido, Dancun Nyawawa, Nyabutho Kevin, Ezekiel Jamaranda, Bill Okanga, PA to Governor Tolgos Richard Munai and Ken Orara.

The post came after police in Uasin Gishu County had arrésted 14 suspècts over the 1st April attáck  on ODM leader Raila Odinga’s entourage in Kebenes, Soy Constituency, on 1st April.

The incidént happened during Mzee Jackson Kibor’s burial.  During the incidént, rowdy youths pelted Mr Odinga’s chopper and vehicles with stones, damaging the chopper’s air shield.
