Several regions of the nation are already recording protests just a day after Opposition Leader Raila Odinga announced the formal beginning of mass action.This Friday, we got a news brief from the Nyanza region that stated that Kondele, Kisumu, residents had already taken to the streets to participate in protests.
The "Ruto must go" slogan that the ODM leader revealed yesterday was being chanted by anti-Ruto rogue youths on motorcycles and on top of moving vehicles.
They also had whistles, vuvuzelas, and placards with various statements.According to the footage, the young people didn't start moving around until they had finished putting themselves together.
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.
