Narc Kenya Party Leader Martha Karua has requested Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga to announce a public holiday on March 20.
Speaking on Tuesday, March 14 in Siaya, Karua stated that it would be difficult for Azimio supporters to go to work and at the same time participate in demonstrations.
“Naomba baba atangaze hiyo siku ya maandamano iwe public holiday. Hatuwezi kuandamana tukifuata haki yetu na tuende kazi. Hiyo siku your excellence twakuomba iwe public holiday ili tuweze kumaliza hii kazi,” Karua said.
The former Justice and Legal Affairs Minister at the same time claimed that President Ruto is constructing a perimeter wall around State House out of fear that Azimio supporters would storm the residence next week.
“Wao ni waoga wameanza kujenga ukuta. Hata ujenge ukuta, uchimbe shimo, unde wapi tarehe ishirini ngojea sisi,” she added.
Raila last week announced that there would be a major protest in Nairobi on March 20, 2023, against the Kenya Kwanza government.
The former premier stated that all Azimio supporters countrywide would converge in Nairobi for massive demonstrations against the William Ruto government.
“Take note that on the 20th of March 2023, we have a date with destiny in Nairobi. On that day our supporters throughout the country shall stage a massive procession in Nairobi for a legitimate and inclusive government. Save that date and let the action begin. The movement for the defence of democracy has now started, “Raila announced.
