President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned Raila Odinga, the National Super Alliance presidential candidate against inciting violent demostrations.

Mr Kenyatta who was speaking in Chuka town, Tharaka-Nithi County, on Monday said that the NASA flagbearer will be in trouble if the demonstrations turn violent.

The president was referring to the proposed demonstrations by Mr Odinga to push for the reforms of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

“If your team touches even a banana of a woman on the street, [you] will be met by the full force of the law,” Mr Kenyatta said.

He said that he was not against the Opposition holding demonstrations as they have every right to do so but they must be peaceful.

He further castigated Mr Odinga for focusing on demonstrations instead of campaigning for the October 26 repeat elections.

He expressed confidence that he would beat his rival in the repeat exercise.

Addressing the NASA demonstrations plan, the Deputy President William Ruto told the coalition to allow the IEBC conduct its business independently.

He said that he was confident of trouncing NASA again.

“We defeated you in the annulled August 8 polls and we will do the same on October 26,” Mr Ruto said.
