Kenyans were left in shock as thousands of people dropped in tens of buses raided a farm owned by the Kenyatta Family along the Nairobi’s Eastern-bypass and started to divide it amongst themselves.
As police were battling protestors and blocking all accesses to the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) gangs of youths both men and women were dropped by buses on the Kamakis side of the Northlands Farm and gained access after bringing down the fence.
They then went about the farm with no police on site with the aim of sub-diving it into plots for themselves as the second day of protests called by opposition leader Raila Odinga got underway.
The raiders who were armed with power saws were seen busy cutting down the eucalyptus trees that have been planted on the farm.
The government has been accusing retired President Uhuru Kenyatta of being the financial muscle behind Raila accusing him of destabilizing President Ruto’s government.
Uhuru has not answered back to the allegations, but he is on record saying that his party leader is Raila Odinga and will remain so.
Unconfirmed reports of the planned raid of the Kenyatta farm started circulating on Sunday night but was seen as farfetched until the actual raid happened on Monday morning.
Pundits are of the view that the government has been desperate to link Uhuru to the demonstrations called by Raila and that the raid on his farm is a way of dragging him in.
