Kenya kwanza, a coalition headed by the deputy president has warned the government in regards to granting them access to the Nyayo stadium.
According to principals from this coalition, Nyayo stadium is to be used on saturday to hold their last rally as we approach elections on the 9th of August 2022.
Musalia Mudavadi the ANC leader and Moses Wetangula who is the FORD Kenya leader stated that they are ready to hold their rally at the Central Business DIstrict of Nairobi if they are not granted access to the stadium.
They said,”We want to give them notice that if they do not open that stadium, we are going to hold our rally right at the junction of Kenyatta Avenue and Moi avenue.”
They went ahead to state that the Azimio la Umoja coalition heade by the presidential candidate Raila Odinga, have been recieving preferential treatment from the state headed by president Uhuru Kenyatta.
However, the Kenya kwanza allies stated that they are set for the upcoming elections and they are ready for a win.
Musalia Mudavadi further urged the cabinet secretary for energy, Monica and the minister of Information and communication technology, Joe Mucheru to ensure that on the election day, everything is running normally. This includes electricity with uninterrupted power outage and the internet so that the citizens can monitor everything that is going on.
He said, “Please, let the ministry of Energy make sure this country has enough fuel to allow people to travel to the polling stations. ICT Minister, do not drop the Internet. We want the results in real-time.”
In a report, the Kenya kwanza leader had written a letter to the ministry of Sports to revoke the earlier cancellation of the permit. The letter was revoked because there is a peace concert that is supposed to be held at the same venue on the same day.
