Pressure To Call For Demos Intensify In Mount Kenya As Kikuyus Who Voted For Ruto Starts To Lament

Mount Kenya residents are expressing deep concerns as the prices of essential commodities, such as food, electricity, and fuel, continue to soar, leaving many Kenyans in distress. President William Ruto, who campaigned on a promise of change and improving the lives of ordinary citizens, now faces mounting pressure to address the pressing issue.

A prominent Kikuyu businessman, who had previously supported President Ruto during the August election, now regrets his decision as the Kenya Kwanza administration has failed to fulfill their promises. The businessman, once critical of recent demonstrations led by Raila Odinga, has had a change of heart and vows to support protests against the skyrocketing cost of living.

The businessman's frustration stems from his license fee doubling, leaving him enraged and ready to participate in demonstrations advocating for a stronger economy. Opposition leader Raila Odinga has voiced his opposition to the Kenya Kwanza financial bill, particularly in light of the recent surge in fuel prices.

Despite mounting discontent among Mount Kenya residents and Odinga's opposition, President Ruto remains unwavering, urging Members of Parliament to support the bill, which includes a housing levy. As the cost of living continues to rise, many anxiously await decisive action from the government to alleviate the burden on ordinary Kenyans and safeguard the stability of local businesses.
