"I Will Retire When Time Is Right" Raila Odinga

In an interview with TV 47, Raila Odinga responded to critics who ask him to retire from active politics.

He claimed that when the right time comes I will retire, Raila Odinga said that the citizens will also tell him today retire.

He further stated that he has not received such calls from Kenyans and therefore he is there to stay and face his political opponents.

This has been taken a clue on being in the ballot in the next General elections in 2027. This would be a face off with the sitting President Ruto as he seeks to defend his seat in the coming general elections.

The leader of the Azimio, Raila Odinga, has stated that if violence breaks out at their large protest on Monday, they will not accept responsibility.

According to Raila, the alliance has ordered its supporters to maintain peace during the nationwide protests.

In an interview with TV 47 that aired on Saturday, Raila made a statement.

The ODM leader noted that if there is violence during their protests on Monday, it would not be the first instance of it.

He claimed in 2017 that the police had killed some of his supporters and injured others.

Asserting that they are Kenyans and that their protests is their struggle, Raila reaffirmed his request that the police not be deployed against Azimio supporters.

Those taking part in the "great march to preserve the nation," according to the ODM leader, would be carrying white kerchiefs and the Kenyan flag to demonstrate that they are peaceful people.

He claimed that the Azimio coalition's goal was to defend the interests of the populace rather than hurt them.

According to Raila, the protests were not financed by a single person but rather by a fundraising organized by supporters.
