BY JOHN WERU,NAIROBI,16TH NOV 2017-NASA has moved its rally to Kibra after police cordoned off Kamukunji Grounds where the meeting was to take place.
The Opposition was to hold the rally as a rehearsal to welcome Raila Odinga who will jet back from the US on Friday.
Siaya Senator James Orengo told journalists at JKIA that “no force under the sun” will stop NASA from holding its activities.
He said Raila’s grand welcome rally, dubbed ‘a million march’, is on and will start at the airport despite the police ban.
Security agencies said the airport is a protected area so they cannot allow such a multitude into the premises.

Police blocked the main gate and ordered them to reverse saying no politician would be allowed into the facility.
