President William Ruto, according to former Mukurweini member of parliament Kabando wa Kabando, is unsettled.
The lawmaker claimed that Ruto's administration has been put to the test by Aimio Chief Raila Odinga's tenacity during his anti-government protests. On Saturday, Kabando referred to the President's administration as "scared stiff".
"Ruto is shaken by Raila's resilience. Raila is a 'guerrilla' swimming in masses, only upset self , handshake, Buliding Bridges Initiative, BBI and Uhuru Deep State. Ruto's regime scared stiff, hence the paranoid bravado. Yet "peace talks" loading? or a secret parley? So called "Hustler Nation" no longer at ease," he said.
He claimed that despite accepting Ruto's legitimacy as president, he continues to back Raila's demonstrations in protest of the high cost of living.
"I recognize Ruto as the constitutionally elected president, and I support Raila's nonviolent mass action to protest rising living costs. Ruto has turned even a disciplined National Youth Service Paramilitary Academy graduation parade into a ranting forum "He stated.
At the beginning of the year, the ODM leader has led the Azimio alliance in anti-government demonstrations. In Nairobi's Kamukunji, Jacaranda, and Jeevanjee gardens, Raila has organized anti-government protests.
Moreover, he has held rallies in Kakamega, Busia, Kisii, Kisumu, and Machakos. Ruto declared he would continue serving Kenyans in spite of the protests. If the President does not address the important issues mentioned by the opposition leader, there will be widespread protests starting next week.
