BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,15TH NOV 2017-The inspector general of police Joseph Boinnet has banned any gathering by National  Super Alliance (Nasa) supporters meant to welcome back its leader Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka ahead of their return in the country on Friday  November 17. Inspector General  said they would be blocked from accessing the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.NASA supporters  plan to receive leader Raila Odinga .

Supporters have planned  a grand reception for  Odinga, who has been on a trip to the US and Europe.

Among some of the arrangements meant to be part of the welcome privy to WWW.UPESINEWS.CO.KE  is a party thrown for Odinga at the  airport party, the same would be preceded by a rally at Kamukunji grounds on Thursday.

However  Mr Boinnet warned that the supporters would not be allowed at the airport unless they comply with the Public Order Act (2016).

“Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is a protected area, hence access is open to travellers and all others with legitimate business at the airport who must be subjected at all times to the standard security procedures,” Mr Boinnet said in a statement sent by NPS spokesman George Kinoti.

Mr Boinnet said it would not be advisable to mobilise huge crowds at the facility as it risks jeopardising the safety of air operators, passengers and other airport users.

“Those without valid reasons to enter the facility will be denied entry. Therefore, those making plans for that day are advised accordingly,” Mr Boinnet added.

Mr Odinga has been in the United States since Tuesday last week for meetings with various diplomats and Congress leaders together with  Kenyans living there.Odinga’s main agenda has been to consolidate support for what he has called  electoral reforms agenda in Kenya.
