It is the beginning of a new week and political temperatures in the country continue to soar.
While Raila and his Azimio team has maintained that Ruto’s government is illegitimate and should fold up and go, Ruto and Kenya Kwanza team has dared Raila to make true its threats to eject them out of office.
On Sunday, it was reported that Ruto now wants the West ie the United States, the United Kingdom, and western countries to impose sanctions against Raila, including a travel ban, over his calls for mass action and rejection of his election win.
However, Raila has dismissed Ruto’s sanction calls. He said this will not stop Azimio from demonstrations and that he is not in a hurry to tour those Western countries.
He warned the West to keep of Kenyan affairs, saying Kenyan is a democratic country and will do its own things without interference.
