The government of the Republic of Kenyan has been asked to launch an extensive investigation into two explosions in Nairobi that left five people dead and several injured during a political rally in Nairobi.
The two explosions ripped through Uhuru Park in Kenya’s capital Nairobi on Sunday during a packed political rally killing five people and wounding 75 others.
The rally was held to protest a draft constitution the country will vote on at the end of August this year.
The former Kenyan Minister of Justice, Martha Karua expressed fear that the attack was politically motivated to deter the electorate from expressing themselves freely. He was speaking in Uganda’s capital Kampala today.
Karua is also the chairperson of the National Rainbow Coalition-Kenya says that the Sunday explosion portray lack of respect for people’s political views in Kenya.
