Where is Obama's pal and Islamic supporter in Kenya, Odinga, in all this?
Obama, Kenyan by his father, grew up Muslim .........I wonder who he supports -- democracy or Islam? Will he defend a cleric who recruits homicide bombers?
Kenya wants immediate deportation of Jamaican cleric
Muslims riot in Nairobi,Kenya.
Four people are feared dead in riots outside Nairobis Jamia Mosque. Protesters supporting deported controversial Jamaican Muslim cleric, Sheikh Abdullah al Faizal, fought pitched battles with the police in riots that kicked off shortly after the Friday prayers.
Odinga instructed Internal Security Minister to carry out comprehensive and urgent investigations into the riots that left at least five people dead and the fatal shooting of protesters.
"The PM also appealed to the Muslim community to remain calm and give the government time on their grievances," a statement said.
The peaceful protest turned violent as the marchers pelted police officers with stones who in turn fired in the air and lobbed tear gas canisters.
Several people including police officers were among those who were seriously injured in the protest while some of them were stabbed by the demonstrators.
Shops adjacent to the mosque were looted and vehicles that were parked on the streets had their windscreens smashed by stone-throwing youths.
Angry members of the public joined in the melee and helped police confront the advancing Muslim youths.
Odinga said in the statement that the confinement of the clerics a sensitive security matter that the government is handling delicately and it should be given time.
The PM also said the police must desist from using live ammunition to quell riots.
