• Raila accused police of framing innocent people in murder cases.
Azimio leader Raila Odinga has claimed that the police officer who was knocked down by a police car during demos in Kisumu was his grandson.
Speaking on Thursday, Raila said he is the one who recruited him to police service.
"That young man who was knocked in Kisumu by a police vehicle is my grandson, his mother is my niece," Raila said. Raila accused police of framing innocent people in murder cases.
Officer Ben Oduor was hit by a speeding police vehicle during the protests and not by a stone as earlier reported.
Oduor of Keroka Police Station in Nyamira was on duty during the mass protests.
According to a police report earlier, the late Oduor sustained injuries during the Azimio protest within the Lakeside City and succumbed to the injuries when rushed to Aga Khan Hospital while at the ICU.
The police report indicated that Oduor while accompanied by other officers were overwhelmed by the charging rioters while at the Jamia Supermarket area.
The regional police boss Noah Mwivanda told some journalists that the deceased was hit with a stone using a catapult during the process and sustained injuries.
However, fresh details are contradicting a police report.
Sources aware of what transpired confide that the deceased was run over by a police vehicle when he missed a step to board the vehicle as they were running away from the angry protestors.
