Narok Senator Ledama Olekina has claimed that the Azimio anti-government demonstrations would take two weeks before coming to an end.
Ledama in an update via Twitter asked Kenyans to prepare for daily protests, which are aimed at pressuring the government to lower the cost of living and halting the IEBC recruitment process.
“Prepare for 14 days daily demonstration in Nairobi, Kenya until the server is opened, cost of living goes down and IEBC recruitment cancelled,” said Ledama.
Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga on Saturday during a joint interview with journalists 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 stated.
Police officers are currently manning Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) as Azimio supporters are holding demonstrations against the Ruto government.
General Service Unit (GSU) officers barricaded several roads in Nairobi leading to Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) and State House.
Other roads including University Way, Dennis Pritt, and Arboretum Road have also been barricaded with security officers deployed in the area.
National Assembly Minority leader Opiyo Wandayi, Senate Minority Leader Stewart Madzayo and Malindi MP Amina Mnyazi have so far been arrested while trying to access KICC.
