Blame games have emerged between the state and opposition over who is behind the ongoing demos in the country.
On Tuesday, Senators from both the Kenya Kwanza and Azimio coalitions accused each other of being responsible for the raids that happened.
The anti-government protests on Monday took a new twist after goons descended on Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga family businesses.
At least three people were reportedly shot in Nyanza.
In Nairobi, unknown people staged a twin attack on the property of former President Uhuru's family along the Eastern Bypass, looting property in the glare of cameras and openly making off with an unknown number of livestock.
A separate attack was staged at East Africa Spectre Limited—Raila's gas cylinder manufacturing plant in Industrial Area, Nairobi. Thugs ferried in motorbikes shattered the property's glass windows.
Nyandarua Senator John Methu said that the Raila-led coalition is to blame for the demos and is still planning to cause more havoc.
"It’s unfortunate that while Azimio is planning for the next demonstrations, some families are planning to bury their loved one," he said.
The UDA Senator further claimed that Azimio sent their own goons to their farms and businesses to whip up public sympathy.
"Maybe had we not had demonstrations, Northlands would have police officers because they would be everywhere," Methu added.
However, Makueni Senator Dan Maanzo refuted the claims the Azimio demonstrations are funded by the former President. He also rubbished claims that Azimio themselves sponsored the chaos.
"We fuel our own cars to mobilise and our supporters are not paid…there’s no evidence that former President Uhuru Kenyatta is funding the demos," Maanzo said.
Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna said the opposition was not after the destruction of property.
"We have given unequivocal instructions to our supporters that no private business or property is to be touched. It's not as if we don't know where properties owned by Kenya Kwanza minions are located but that's not our beef. Our beef is with Ruto not his hotels," Sifuna said.
Nominated Senator Gloria Orwoba highlighted that the government should not entertain the opposition demos to avoid a repetition of the same protests in 2027.
"If we continue to condone that there is another way to get to power other than being elected, we will have other leaders following Raila Odinga’s footsteps," she said.
Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei accused both Raila and Uhuru of sponsoring the invaders at Northlands and EA Spectre.
"The attacks were sponsored by Tinga and his sponsor Uhuru for public sympathy with the hope that their barren maandamanos can be jump-started," he said.
Former KNUT secretary general Wilson Sossion also noted that the sponsors of the maandamanos are only after protecting economic entities.
"The real actors and sponsors of this mass action are being known and the objective is not about the cost of living and IEBC, it's about the protection of economic entities. Uhuru is the main sponsor and Raila is the face of the activities, " he said.
