As long as the government does not heed their requests, Raila and other Azimio leaders said they would participate in the daily protest.The country's leaders are calling for a reduction in the expense of living. Raila wants the cost of necessities like unga and cooking oil to be reduced as quickly as possible.

In addition, he is calling for the government to reinstate all the subsidies it cut after seizing the executive branch from former President Uhuru Kenyatta, including gasoline, unga, and education subsidies, among others.

Raila's demands, especially the subsidies, are too expensive for the government to meet, according to Primie Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi.A few hours after Raila made his demands, Mudavadi said that some of the subsidies, like the gasoline subsidies, were a significant financial burden on the taxpayers because they led to high taxation.
