It is on a Thursday morning and Azimio la Umoja marathon protests enter day two today. Even after Azimio bigwigs on Wednesday kept off the protests, coalition leader Raila Odinga termed it a success.
The leaders’ whereabouts were a top secret, with Mr Odinga only speaking to local media exclusively from an unknown location as his co-principal Martha Karua issued a statement condemning the arrest of some opposition leaders and their associates.
He said the agitation to push the Kenya Kwanza government led by President William Ruto to lower the high cost of living will not be thwarted by the State.
It was established that the opposition bigwigs devised strategies to confuse government operatives from monitoring their activities as well as possible attacks by a unit of the police – Operation Support Unit — which they claim is targeting them and their supporters.
Do you think today’s protests will be termed a success by Azimio? will Raila emerge from his hideout today?
