Mogotio Member of Parliament Reuben Kiborek has threatened to lead President William Ruto's supporters to storm Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga’s Karen home.
Speaking during an interview with Citizen TV’s Daily Break on Friday, March 17, the youthful lawmaker stated that the Kenya Kwanza government is prepared to deal with Azimio la Umoja's protests.
Kiborek added that the government might consider having parallel demonstrations at the former Prime Minister’s home.
“On this one, we dare Raila Odinga. Bring it on we can even decide to go and occupy his house in Karen,” Kiborek warned.
The UDA MP at the same time asked President Ruto not to subdue to Raila’s grievances noting he would do the same in 2032 if Rigathi Gachagua becomes President.
“William Ruto should not subdue to pressure because if he agrees to give him a handshake today in 2032 Gachagua will be forced to subdue to pressure and listen to his grievances. In 2042 if I become president I will be forced by the same Raila to subdue to his pressure again and listen to him,” he claimed.
Ruto on Wednesday asked the ODM leader to hold peaceful demonstrations and work with the police to make sure that no lives or businesses are disrupted during the protests.
“My friend Raila Odinga you cannot continue to blackmail the country. We have no problem with you organizing demonstrations but please it’s your responsibility to work with the police to make sure that the rest of the citizens of Kenya, their lives are not disrupted, their property is not destroyed, their businesses are not affected and they can go to work,” Ruto stated.
