National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga has told off western countries that are against his swearing-in as the the ‘people’s president’. Mr Odinga on Thursday said the US and other countries that have advised against the December 12 inauguration should know that “the will of the people cannot be stopped”. The US, Mr Odinga said, should not talk about violation of the constitution as far as his swearing-in is concerned yet Washington DC has been "loudly silent" on killing of innocent protesters by police since August. Kenya Police stand accused of shooting and killing more than 60 people in violent protests that followed August 8 General Election and October 26 repeat presidential election. "We thought we had friends but we were wrong and now we know they are enemies. Up to today, no single ambassador has condemned the killing of people by police. "The western countries should, therefore, keep off the affairs of the country as Kenyan problems will only be solved by Kenyans themselves," Mr Odinga said. He spoke at the City Mortuary in the capital Nairobi when he met and condoled with the families that lost their loved ones during the post-poll chaos. The families were collecting bodies for burial.
