Parade protest


"We Can't Protest Against Ruto" Rift Valley Governor Tells Raila, Claims What The President Won't do

The Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance boss Raila Odinga's plan on mass action slated to take place on December 7th and 12th has attracted mixed reactions across the political space.

Political leaders within the Kenya Kwanza Alliance camp have criticized the protests, which Raila says he will lead at Kamukunji Grounds over Ruto's move to suspend the four commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

Uasin Gishu Governor Jonathan Bii better known was 'Koti Moja' has said that his residents cannot hold the demonstrations to defend people who tried subverting the will of Kenyans, and that Raila should call off the protests.

Bii said that Raila has alternative ways to make his case known, and not taking to the streets when Ruto was working day and night to stabilize the economy.

"The Former Prime Minister has said that we should go for mass action because he is thinking that President William Ruto wants to go against the law. I want to tell Raila that such a strategy is outdated. Here in Uasin Gishu we are still healing from what happened in 2007/2008."

"We will not take part in that. Ruto is from this place, he contested and asked us for our votes and we voted for him, we cannot protest against him. You had handshake with Kibaki and Uhuru, Ruto does not understand that language so don't try," said Koti Moja."
