In the original photo shared, the ODM leader was addressing the media following increased extra-judicial killings in the country, urging the government to take measures. 

"We firmly oppose the current trend directed by a vindictive regime and a President that seems to be pursuing a personal vendetta against specific current and past State officers in the pretext of pursuing extra-judicial executions," Raila said.
