On Friday, authorities reportedly formed a cordon around the park where Odinga had been expected to address supporters, with police firing tear gas on those walking towards the area.

The government has denied claims of attempted assassination of National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga.

Live footage on Kenyan TV showed some protesters throwing stones at police and two vehicles on fire.

Kenyan police have used tear gas and water cannons to disperse supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga who are trying to gather near the country's main airport to welcome him back from an overseas trip.

"The indiscriminate use of live ammunition is totally unacceptable". The leaders were accompanied by a crowd that chanted anti-Jubilee slogans.

Police warned earlier this week they would not allow a ceremony to welcome Odinga back from speaking engagements overseas. "The opposition leader was able to briefly address his supporters on the road after they were bocked from moving to the centre of Nairobi", she added.

"These supporters of NASA were unarmed civilians peacefully exercising their right to assembly", Odinga said in a statement.

The claims came after windscreen of Raila's vehicle was hit as police used teargas canisters to scatter opposition supporters in Nairobi on Friday.

The repeat poll, which was boycotted by Odinga, was ordered by Kenya's Supreme Court after it annulled the results of an August election over irregularities.
