"Drama" In Kisumu As Protestors Forcefully Run Away With Police Barriers During Mass Action

Just yesterday, the leader of the Azimio party, Raila Odinga, declared officially that the ground is open for the mass demonstration, whose date he announced would be March 20th this month.

Unfortunately, the residents of Kondele Kisumu county have woken up to a mass demonstration facing the county lodge where the road blocks were placed with card tags saying that they don't want Ruto chanting on top of their voices that Ruto must go.

The residents who have created fear among the security officers who were guiding the block are helpless, just as the protestors who were angry with the government forcefully ran away with the police barrier during mass action.

Among the top things the residents are demonstrating for, as listed by Azimio leader Raila Odinga, are

1: cost of living

The shortage of food in the country has led to a high cost of living, and many are striving to figure out how they can make a living.

2: Over Taxation

Azimio's leader has accused the current government of imposing high taxes against people's businesses, thereby killing many businesses. At the same time, life is so difficult that you can't make your business prosper.

3: Two tribes have regimes that could lead to genocide.

Raila also took issue with the recent appointments by the Kenya Kwanza administration. According to the opposition leader, recent appointments have turned the country into a two-tribe state where only people from two major tribes secure state appointments.

4: Gachagua's misconduct

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua's recent public statements also took center stage in Azimio's presser. Raila criticised Gachagua's sentiments that the government operated like a company with shares, where appointments are made depending on the number of shares owned.

At the top of their voices, what can be heard is that Ruto must go.
