Odinga – stay home and don’t vote


Kenya opposition leader Raila Odinga told a BBC interviewer he was not calling for protests during repeat presidential elections scheduled for Thursday, but wanted supporters to stay home and boycott the vote.

“We have not told people to protest on polling day. We have not said that at all. We have told people to stay away,” he said in an interview broadcast on Tuesday.

Odinga’s comments contradict his previous public calls for protests on voting day.
