The attackers invaded the Kenyatta family farm  along  the Nairobi Eastern Bypass on Monday morning, cutting down trees and made away with sheep’s, hours after which Odinga’s gas company was attacked.

In a statement, IG Koome said police received reports of invasion  at the Embakasi-based plant and ‘responded swiftly and prevented further crimes.”


“Our investigation into the destruction and injuries caused has begun, and those found guilty shall face the law,” said Koome.

The attacks happened during the second anti-government protests in Nairobi , during which protestors engaged in battles with the police.

The police officers used teargas to disperse the protestors, and people lost their lives and others were injured .

According to IG Koome, the protestors instigated violence against the police during the demonstrations he says were unlawful, leaving 23 officers injured.

“Property of unknown value was destroyed in Nairobi  ,including two police motor vehicles and 23 officers that were injured,” he said while condemning the violence and property destruction.

After a day filled with much chaos, police were deployed on Tuesday mid-morning  to the Kenyatta family land to the sight of several temporary iron sheet shacks erected by the invaders, as well as what appeared to have been subdivision on the land.

Odinga has blamed the Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua for the destruction.
