Its official - the Kenyan Army involved in internal "security"

The initial deployment of army officers was ostensibly for "humanitarian" purposes. No more... the Army was deployed in Nakuru.

Whereas we welcome the enforced peace the army brings - they are well armed & trained to suppress enemies - but it is a slippery slope. Will these actions embolden them to take a more active part in our politics?

The plan is to fast track the petition and have a friendly high court judge nullify Raila's election as Langata MP. Soon after, police will move in and quickly arrest Raila and Ruto and have them charged in court for organising and inciting violence in parts of Rift Valley against certain ethnicities.
