The government has withdrawn the bodyguards of NASA chiefs Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka with immediate effect. Raila is the NASA presidential candidate and Kalonzo his running mate.

While confirming the withdrawal, Raila spokesman Dennis Onyango said the bodyguards were last night asked to report to GSU headquarters in Nairobi for further instructions.

The withdrawal of the security detail comes on the day the two leaders are expected to lead their supporters in a  demonstration to push for the removal of Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officials whom they accuse of bungling the presidential poll in favour the Jubilee candidate President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“The withdrawal of my security and that of Raila is illegal. The law requires presidential candidates to have an all round security protection,” said  Kalonzo Musyoka Tuesday.
