WE ARE STILL A NATION OF LAWS
As ODM Deputy Party Leader, I am concerned by the rearrest after discharge of Embakassi East ODM Mp Hon. Babu Owino.
I am particularly concerned by the conduct of the police involved in this incident. I would wish to remind security officers that we will hold each one of you individually culpable in the event of any harm to the member of parliament.
I would like to remind everyone in the security services, that through the will of God, everything eventually comes to an end. It always does. We are a nation of laws and should behave as such.
Finally, Let it be known to all. That we shall not relent in our pursuit of electoral justice. This country SHALL and MUST have free and fair elections.
HASSAN ALI JOHO
ODM Deputy Party Leader
