Police are trying to establish the identity of man who has made threats on Facebook of committing mass killings during during Nasa’s anti-IEBC demonstrations on Monday.

In the chilling post, the man posted a picture of himself holding an AK47 assault rifle with a message that he was going to “kill as many dogs as he can” during the planned demos.

“Tomorrow will be the beginning of the end of my days on this planet… so I pray to God that should I go down tomorrow during the demonstration I will have to take as many dogs as I can with me,” read the message posted by the man whose face can’t clearly be seen in the photo.

In his reaction, the Inspector General of the National Police Service of Kenya, Joseph Boinnet, warned the public to beware of the threat even as the police endeavours to establish the man’s identity.

“Keeping this country at peace is our collective responsibility and we are trying to find out who he is,” said Boinnet.


This development comes in the wake violent protests by Nasa supporters on Friday that left three people dead in Bondo town and seven others with injuries in Kisumu, Homa Bay and Migori.

Among the injured was a 75-year-old woman who sustained bullet wounds in Homa Bay while another 75-year-old woman was shot and injured in Migori.

In Nyalenda, Kisumu, police tear-gassed nursery school pupils at Mount Carmel Academy. Demonstrations also took place in Nairobi, Busia, Kakamega and Mombasa.
