Kenya: I Skipped Raila Oath Due to Security Fears - Kalonzo”

The attack on the home of Wiper Democratic Movement (WDM) leader Kalonzo Musyoka came a day after he failed to turn up to a controversial ceremony at which his colleague Raila Odinga swore himself in as the "people's president", the Nation reported.

National Super Alliance leaders say they fear for their lives following the Tuesday night attack on Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka's home in Karen, Nairobi.

"I can confirm that he was not under house arrest", Owino told journalists outside Musyoka's Karen residence, where he has joined a team of detectives investigating a grenade incident at the compound. He said "if the motive of this attack is to have us bend our knees, we will not".

Nairobi DCI commander Ireri Kamwende together with senior police officers from Bomb Detection Unit visited the home to investigate the attack. However, we didn't get there. Fortunately, there were three guards from Cobra security company and their patrol vehicle right outside his compound.

A bullet discharged from an AK-47 rifle and a grenade safety pin were recovered in Musyoka's compound. "Fortunately, it was a stun hand grenade which is not meant to harm but it just gives a loud bang and is meant to scare.This is different from the disintegrating hand grenade which normally has pellets that can kill you".

His vivid absence has rattled Opposition supporters and a section of NASA allied leaders who largely feel Kalonzo was not a reliable political figure.

Speaking at his residence in Karen Tuesday evening, Musyoka alleged that his bodyguards were withdrawn and as a result of this, he and his co-principals Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula could not attend the ceremony.

"We will not be intimidated".

Investigation has since been launched into the said incident.
