As the government acknowledged that they won't be allowed to reach the Central Business District during their planned Monday mass rally in Nairobi, Raila Odinga, the leader of Azimio la Umoja, and his supporters have suffered a serious setback.
To stop protesters from entering the Central Business District, the government plans to send out security agents. This is to stop them from damaging government buildings and commercial establishments if the protest turns violent.
The opposition chief called on his followers to march in large numbers to State House to voice their complaints to the president after he received no response to his demands from President William Ruto.
Azimio la Umoja leaders made assurances that their rallies would be peaceful and that no one would damage Kenyan property during their anti-government marches. They also asked that security personnel not interfere with their demonstrations.
Although underlining that he will not be intimidated by the opposition's calls for sizable protests and that his government will not be bullied, President William Ruto, on the other hand, kept up his tough demeanor.
