Raila, Kalonzo Signal Start of Nationwide Mass Protests

The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition has announced the official start of nationwide protests against the President Dr William Ruto led Kenya Kwanza government.

The coalition’s leader Raila Odinga’s announcement comes after the lapse of a 14-day ultimatum that he had issued to the government.

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party supremo was speaking at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Foundation, where he spelled out actions the opposition outfit and its supporters will take to compel President William Ruto into resigning, lowering the cost of living and instituting electoral reforms.

Raila announced that he will lead a peaceful procession of his supporters in Nairobi on March 20, 2023.

“We launch a campaign of defiance, peaceful protests and demonstrations. It begins today and now. We urge the victims of the retrogressive policies of this illegitimate regime to join this political revolution. We are stronger together.

“Take note. On the 20th of March 2023, we have a date with destiny in Nairobi. On that day, our supporters throughout the country will stage a massive procession in Nairobi for a legitimate and inclusive government,” he stated.

Speaking at the event, Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka announced the launch of a massive peaceful movement against Ruto’s regime.

Kalonzo stated that they will lead the people in taking back their delegated powers.
