Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has been accused of sponsoring Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition rally at Kamukunji Grounds on Monday, January 23, 2023.
The ruling United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Members of County Assembly in Nairobi led by Minority Leader Anthony Kiragu, said Sakaja provided the venue and money for the event.
“We are aware that he facilitated the planning of the Azimio meeting. He donated Charter Hall on Sunday afternoon where groups were meeting during the day to strategise, mobilise and do fundraising for that event,” Kiragu said.
He further alleged that the money used to plan the event was collected at Sakaja’s private office in Riverside.
“We are appealing to him to not wear a yellow t-shirt during the day and a blue one during the night,” Kiragu said.
During the rally, Azimio leader Raila Odinga vowed not to recognise William Ruto as President of Kenya, claiming he is in office illegally. Raila also demanded that the Kenya Kwanza government resigns, arguing that it had neither the mandate of the people nor the ability to govern.
In addition, he and other Azimio leaders asked citizens to reject the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) administration.
