NAIROBI, Kenya – Kenya's main opposition group says police have stopped to one of his advisors before a planned a protest ceremony to organize a simulated inauguration of Raila Odinga as president.
The Odinga National Super Alliance said in a statement that the arrested man, economist David Ndii, was recently appointed chairman of a committee that organizes the protest event on December 12.
The statement said police arrested Ndii on Sunday in Diani on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya.
A police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press, confirmed that the detectives are interrogating Ndii.
Odinga successfully challenged the August re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta in court but then boycotted a new vote in October, demanding electoral reforms.
Kenyatta won with 98 percent of the votes and the wa was inaugurated last week.
