Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga has issued a new update regarding his much-awaited antigovernment protests slated for Monday, March 20, 2023.
Speaking during a joint interview with journalists on Saturday, March 18, Raila stated that he would not lead his supporters to State House but would instead send a few emissaries to deliver his grievances to President William Ruto.
“Tutatatuma watu na gari moja ama mbili wapeleke hiyo barua, wakikubaliwa kuingia watampea yeyesaibarua. Wakikatazwa wataacha hiyo barua kwa mlango alafu watoke,”
At the same time, the former Prime Minister stated that the demonstrations would continue even after the March 20 demonstrations.
“Sisi tunataka ulimwengu ijue kuna shida Kenya, na hii maneno haitasiha hadi suluhisho ipatikane, tutaendelea baada ya jumatatu,” he added.
The ODM leader further promised Kenyan that he would carry out peaceful protests noting that there is a plot by the government to create chaos during the demonstrations.
“Maandamano yetu itakua ya amani na watu wetu wote watakuja wakibeba vitambaa vyeupe kuonyesha sisi ni watu wa amani.
“Tunajua kuna njama ya kuleta majambazi wengine walete vurugu alafu tulaumiwe ni sisi tumefanya hayo mambo. Tumeona bwana Itumbi akiandika mambo machafu unaskia Gachagua vilevile akiongea, tumeskia bwana Sonko amepewa jukumu ya kuleta watu wa vurugu. Tunataka kuambiwa taifa ikulikane kama kutakua na vurugu haitakua ni watu wetu,” Raila remarked.
