Raila clarifies reports of postponing Monday protests to restrategize.
Yesterday, a statement went round saying that Azimio la umoja leader had postponed protests because of the violence and vandalism experienced.
The statement highlighted that the coalition is not advocating for any violence therefore, there was need for a restrategy before they go on with the mass action.
The statement read,”It has been noted and agreed that the violence and vandalism experienced previously is not in line with what I want for this country. As a statesman and a patriot, my legacy is built on the foundation of democratic freedom, peace, love and unity.”
“It is in this period that I find it fit and favourable to call on all Kenyans to exercise peace as we fall back to restrategize on alternative measures that will pile pressure on the government to bring down the cost of living, reform and transform the key institutions that are charged with protecting and advancing our democracy in order to strengthen our nation,” read part of the statement.
However, the former premier, Raila clarifies reports of postponing the protests, terming the statement as fake news to distract his course.
He stated,”Ignore the fake news from the usual detractors, we are going to have a mega demonstration earlier communicated.”
Tension has however hit the air, as the deputy president, Rigathi Gachagua swore the monday will be the last protest Raila Odinga is holding.
Gachagua stated,”I want to assure the people of Kenya today from Kakamega County that tomorrow nobody, and I repeat nobody, will be allowed to destroy property anywhere in the Republic of Kenya.”
“I want to caution those young men, who have been taking advantage of the violence unleashed by Raila to steal property, mug people and loot property, that Monday is their last day to do so,” Gachagua added.
