Today could’ve marked the third week of Azimio’s weekly protests thanks to President William Ruto’s call for a dialogue with opposition leader Raila Odinga.
The bi-partisan talks that have taken center stage in the political circle are already facing fresh hurdles from politicians allied with the Kenya Kwanza government.
Raila Odinga’s team wants the talks to be held outside parliament and involve other key players while those allied to the president insist that only talks in parliament are allowed.
If push comes to shove, Azimio’s camp has promised to return to the streets.
Ruto allies have also insisted that Azimio boss Raila Odinga recognize the President’s legitimacy before talks. Conversely, Azimio wants the cost of living and IEBC servers as among priority topics.
As the talks are in the initial stages, politicians from both political divides are taking a jab against each other whenever they get a chance.
Do you think the President will agree to a handshake?
