Police have made an appeal to public to help in identifying a man who was pictured holding a bunch of ripe bananas on the right hand while wielding a knife stained with what appears to be fresh blood during the mayhem that marred Nasa leader Raila Odinga’s homecoming.
The man’s photograph was published in the Saturday Nation.
According to former Kitutu Chache South ODM parliamentary seat aspirant Antony Kibagendi, the said man allegedly stabbed a trader around City Stadium to steal his bananas.
His picture has been shared on social media with people calling for his arrest.
its unbelievable that some people are trying to justify such acts of evil. He should be arrested and charged.

The man was part of Nasa supporters who were marching on Jogoo road on Friday as part of Mr Odinga’s convoy.
The violent clashes between Nasa supporters and the police brought business to a standstill on the busy road.
Business was also affected along the route that Mr Odinga’s convoy followed.
