Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio political party, issued a warning yesterday that the Opposition coalition would take to the streets once again if the government fails to demonstrate both goodwill and honesty in the bi-partisan discussions aimed at ending the political stalemate that emerged after the August 2022 elections.
In a recent statement, Raila Odinga, who called off the Thursday demonstration after the government met one of his demands restated that his coalition is not keen on power-sharing with Kenya Kwanza, whom he accused of coming to power through a “civilian coup.”
Yesterday, a member of the Kenya Kwanza bi-partisan team proposed that they resumed negotiations as a tactic to distract the opposition and prevent them from taking to the streets.
