Azimio Leaders Might Not Sleep in Their Houses on Sunday After Detecting What Ruto Might be Planning

The Azimio La Umoja leadership is considering having some of its members not sleep on their houses on Sunday, to avoid house arrests, it's emerging.

On Monday, the coalition is slated to hold a big anti-government rally in Nairobi, which, it's reported, might include leading it's supporters to State House.

It's now emerging that the coalition is worried, after detecting that President William Ruto might be planning on having some prevented from leaving their homes on Monday, to water down the protests.

The Star has established that as a result, the coalition is considering having some of them spend the nights between now and Sunday in other places in a bid to prevent house arrests.

One of them told the paper that they are aware of plans by security agents to block them from leaving their houses on that day but have their own plans.

"We are aware that one of the options they are looking at is placing some of us under house arrest but we are well ahead of them in this game," the leader told the paper.

Its reported that some of them are now planning to shift from their homes to other undisclosed places, all in a bid to dodge police officers.

It has also emerged that state agents have began monitoring every of their move, concerned about their plans, especially the one on storming State House.

The fears have been confirmed by ODM Director of Communications Philip Etale, who says that even in the event that Azimio leaders are blocked from attending the demos, Kenyans will handle the remaining part, after being mobilised ahead of time.

"Azimio leaders house arrests won't work. The protests will be spearheaded by Kenyans and not the leaders," he is quoted.

Its reported that it is for this reason that some Azimio leaders have stopped posting on social media, in case they are being watched by the government.
