This week is a make-or-break moment for both the opposition and the Kenya Kwanza government as they battle out during demonstrations.
Azimio la Umoja one Kenya Alliance promised the mother of all protests from Wednesday through Friday in a three-day weekly affair.
The government, on the other side, has warned that it won’t allow Azimio chief Raila Odinga to cause chaos in a bid to get power.
Interior CS Kithure Kindiki also warned that he would take action against opposition leaders and branded them criminals hiding behind the constitution.
However, some experts say President William Ruto will likely cut a deal with Raila to stop the protests.
This comes weeks after the bipartisan talks stalled and made the opposition feel shortchanged.
The protests that have been witnessed so far have been catastrophic that left tens of Kenyans dead and scores sustaining injuries.
The pressure mounted on the Kenya Kwanza government now begs the question: will President William Ruto succumb to the opposition’s pressure and cut a deal?
