National Super Alliance (NASA) supporters have asked NASA CEO Norman Magaya to inform the police not to attend the opposition’s rally in Jacaranda Nairobi on Tuesday.
According to Suna East MP Junet Mohammed, the rally which will be presided over by NASA leader Raila Odinga will be peaceful.
The MP wrote on his Twitter account, “Nasa supporters are asking Mr Magaya to inform the police NOT to attend the Nasa jacaranda function on Tuesday. It will be peaceful.”
Earlier on NASA Co-principle Musalia Mudavadi asked Kenyans to snub President Uhuru Kenyatta's inauguration on Tuesday to attend the NASA rally.
Mr Odinga stated that the coalition will hold a memorial service at Jacaranda to pray with the families of those allegedly killed by police during demonstrations against the repeat presidential election.

The NASA leader stated that it would be crazy for any government to arrange for any ceremony when the country is mourning.
Nairobi police commander Japheth Koome, however, stated that the coalition has not informed the police about the event.
Koome declared that anyone who contravened the law would be dealt with firmly.
He stated that a multi-agency security operation had been put in place in readiness for President Kenyatta's inauguration.
Various roads have been marked as 'red zones' and will be manned by security officers from 5.30 am.
