On Monday, Kenyans were treated to dramatic scenes across the country as the Opposition leader and Azimio supremo Raila Odinga led his supporters to the second day of bi-weekly protests against the government.
However, the most dramatic of all was the invasion of the Northlands Estate, which is linked to former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s family, by a group of over 100 intruders.
The intruders who were armed cut down trees using power saws and made away with an unknown number of livestock before setting a section of the farm on fire.
The invasion was followed by a raid by suspected goons who destroyed property and smashed windows at the East Africa Spectre Limited building along Mombasa Road which is associated with the Odinga family.
These latest acts of hooliganism add more tension to the already precarious political situation that could get out of hand if the rhetoric being spewed by the two camps is anything to go by.
Do you think it is now time for the two camps to have a dialogue? Or Should the Ruto-led team maintain its hard stance despite the anti-government protests that could potentially deter his economic agenda?
