We have not seen the police teargas Oparanya and the CS Eugene who have been meeting every weekend with several political groupings. You can’t decampaign your opponents by ‘misusing’ the police! You can’t become politically influential by ‘misusing’ the police!”– the Ford-Kenya youth leader told JIBAMBE.COM
