Azimio la Umoja One Kenya leader Raila Odinga yesterday announced that the coalition will resume anti-government protests after the holy Month of Ramadhan.
While addressing his supporters at Ufangamano House, Raila, warned that Azimio had not yet agreed to be part of the negotiations, arguing that the government would not bulldoze them.
He said the protests will run parallel with the bi-partisan talks, citing “signs of intransigence” from the ruling Kenya Kwanza coalition.
Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua alleged that the planned talks should be on neutral grounds and not restricted to parliament.
However, President Ruto’s camp insists that its team of negotiators will strictly engage the opposition on the matter of the reconstitution of the electoral body and will not be drawn into other concerns raised by the opposition.
Do you think Raila’s decision to resume Maandamano is justified?
