Why late-night security meeting chose to pull out police from Uhuru Park

What you need to know:

  • Mr Odinga’s official bodyguards were disarmed and ordered to report to their units.

  • NSAC agreed that past Nasa processions thrived on chaos in which lives were lost and property destroyed.

  • Other teams of undercover police officers were deployed to maintain round-the-clock surveillance around the opposition chiefs.

A key security organ held a meeting late in the night on Monday and decided that police should be withdrawn from Uhuru Park and allow Nasa to ‘swear in’ Mr Raila Odinga.
