If there will be any violence, we won’t take the blame- Raila.
Speaking today, Azimio la umoja leader Raila odinga outlined that the coalition will not take the blame if any violence is witnessed on Monday.
In the interview, Raila stated that they had instructed their allies to remain peaceful, if otherwise then they will not held responsible.
He stated,”Kama kutakuwa na vurugu yoyote, mtu ataumia, hatuwezi kulaumiwa sisi. Ni wale watafanya hayo ndio watalaumiwa.”
Additionally Raila stated that if violence will happen, then this won’t be the first time his allies are harmed.
He recalled in the 2017, where some of his supporters were murdered and others injured by the police.
He stated,”In 2017, a lot of people died…We went to City Mortuary and there were 27 dead supporters. We also had people in hospitals including KNH, Nairobi Women.Some had gun injuries on their arms and stomachs.”
Notably, Raila assured businesses that they also want to grow the economy, and it is not his wish to see shops being destroyed.
He stated,”I want to tell Kenyans. If there will be any form of violence, it will not be us. It will be other persons. I want to assure our business people that Azimio wants to grow our economy.”
Those participating in the mass action have been urged to carry white handkerchiefs and the Kenyan flag to show that they are peaceful people.
