Azimio la Umoja - One Kenya coalition Raila Odinga has condemned attacks on his property and that of former President Uhuru Kenyatta's family by unknown persons on Monday, March 27, 2023.

The East Africa Spectre Limited, a gas plant owned by the opposition leader along Mombasa Road, and the Kenyatta family's farm in Ruiru were invaded by goons and property of unknown value destroyed on Monday morning.

Speaking during the opposition's anti-government protests in Kibera, Nairobi, Raila blamed the attacks on senior Kenya Kwanza leaders.

"Those cowards sent goons today to Uhuru Kenyatta’s farm. They have also resorted to sending people to my Spectre factory. That is an act of crime and stupidity," Raila lamented.

"We have followed the constitution in our politics and protests. Those invading other people’s farms and factories are cowards."

The former prime minister maintained that the opposition won't be cowed by the acts and will continue with their push for economic and electoral reforms in the country.

Videos that have surfaced online show goons pelting stones and destroying property at Raila's company.

The firm located in the Industrial area is among the leading players in the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cylinder businesses.

As the goons wreaked havoc on the ODM leader's property, another group of persons was raiding Kenyatta family-owned Northlands City near Ruiru on the Eastern Bypass.

The gang invaded the multi-billion property well-armed with machetes and power saws before they began to cut down eucalyptus trees as others made away with sheep grazing on the farm.

The attacks are linked to the opposition's protests that a section of the Kenya Kwanza leaders claims are sponsored by the former Head of State.
