On Sunday, December 4th, various leaders accompanied president William Ruto for an interdenominational prayer and thanksgiving service at Embu university. Among those present were; DP Rigathi Gachagua, Attorney General Justin Muturi, Governor Cecily Mbarire, Governor Kawira Mwangaza, Governor Muthomi Njuki, Kimani Ichung'wa among others.
The former prime minister, Raila Odinga has declared that he will be holding rallies in Kamukunji grounds on 7th and 12th of December. Leaders who congregated in Embu reacted to this call by Odinga, with many of them terming it unnecessary.
The deputy president pleaded with president William Ruto to provide the opposition with enough security during their demonstrations adding that it's their right. Gachagua stated the only thing that the government should not allow is for the demonstrators to destroy people businesses.
"I want to plead with you Mr president, make sure that you provide enough security to Raila Odinga and his Azimio counterparts during the time of demonstrations. Let them make noise from morning to evening because it's their right. What you should not allow them to do is to destroy other people property. That one we cannot allow," alluded the second in command. (Watch video from 4 min).
