Kikuyu Voted for Me — Raila Dispels Fears That Businesses Will Be Destroyed on Monday

Azimio leader Raila Amollo Odinga on Friday told a crowd in Kiambu that anyone saying businesses will be disrupted during mass action scheduled for Monday was peddling lies.

Raila said those peddling such lies wanted it to appear that a certain community who are the majority business operators in Nairobi will lose out on the mass action.

“On Monday, our mass action will be peaceful and we have no intention of destroying anyone's business…we will be seeking to liberate Kenyans from a bad regime that is stealing and exploiting them and is unable to control the high cost of living," said Raila, adding "I heard some people saying that we will destroy the Kikuyu businesses. Kikuyus voted for me. They are my people. Our business on Monday will be to get back the stolen victory and pressure the government to lower the cost of living."

Raila who was accompanied by other Azimio stalwarts Martha Karua, Kalonzo Musyoka, Eugene Wamalwa, and Wycliffe Oparanya said the Monday mass action was on and there was no going back about it.

Jubilee Party's Jeremiah Kioni told the crowd that Monday's mass action had the blessing of former President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta.

The Azimio motorcade kicked off at Ruaka taking in Kiambu town, Kirigiti, Ruiru, and later Githurai 45 estate.

In Githurai 45, the Azimio dais was destroyed by rowdy youths but Raila went on and addressed his supporters, nonetheless.
