There might be witnessed some degree of chaos during the Azimio La Umoja rallies slated for Nairobi on Monday, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said.
Azimio is planning a mega demonstration event in the city, which will be the culmination of the rallies it has been holding against President William Ruto.
Kalonzo has claimed that while Azimio plans to hold peaceful protests, there are plans by the other side to bring in hooligans and blame it on Azimio.
He has alleged that Ruto's side wants to bring in people to loot shops and then blame it on Azimio supporters, to make them look bad.
The former Vice President has urged Kenyans not to be misled into thinking that it is Azimio supporters if such happens, as they will be very disciplined.
“We know they have plans to use a few of their supporters to loot the shops and blame it on Azimio but l want to tell them that we shall be very disciplined," he is quoted by the Daily Nation.
He made the remarks at the Mazembe Grounds in Nakuru on Thursday, while accompanying Azimio boss Raila Odinga for another anti-Ruto rally.
He asked Kenyans to be part of the demonstrations, saying that it will not only be in Nairobi and Kenyans are free to hold theirs wherever they are.
"We are inviting all of you to demonstrate from wherever you will be. As your leaders we will lead you and give directions," he added.
Kalonzo made the remarks while assuring the country that the demos will be peaceful, adding that there are no plans to cause mayhem.
But allies of Ruto have predicted chaos on Monday, as they accuse Raila of once again resorting to street protests to intimidate the government.
