Azimio coalition leader Raila Odinga is at a major political crossroad. He is contemplating on a move after failure of bipartisan talks. At the same stage of politics he is measuring his options on opposing the house tax plan. The planned increase of petroleum prices is a matter to think about also.
There is pressure to return to the streets and champion for people's rights. The Kenyan population is feeling the pinch of high cost of living. The prices if basic commodities has almost become unbearable. The promises made by the head of state are not helping the situation either.
Raila Odinga can make use of this hard times for his own political good. The Kenyan voter is likely to embrace him more. Even those who voted against him will be up in arms to endorse him. This is one big headache for Azimio political camp.
The people of low economic status are highly to accept Ruto's tax measures. Making ends meet on a daily basis is hard for them. They wouldn't agree on anything to that seems to make life even harder.
