Following the Raila's alleged declaration of Public holiday on 20th. March 2023 due to the planned protests in Nairobi, the leader of Minority Honourable Opiyo Wandayi has urged employers to release their employees.
In his statement issued as he was addressing the press, he said that the employers should free their employees to give them time to take part in their public duty as organised by Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga.
This he said in exemption of the media team that would be at work to cover the proceedings to share with the people.
"Since Monday has been declared a public holiday, all employers except the media should release their employees and allow them to participate in their National duty" Said MP Opiyo Wandayi.
Opiyo Wandayi's remarks which he has not said as a joke but as serious matter, is against the law as the holiday was not declared through the right channel according to the law.
The Opposition leader despite having been harshly criticised over his move to declare Monday a public holiday, has still maintained that he would go on with his mass action plans as he tours Nakuru County today ahead of Monday.
