The opposition leaders have now provided their followers with a path forward after the Azimio coalition's 14-day deadline for the Ruto-led Kenya Kwanza administration expired.
The leader of the Narc Kenya party, Martha Karua, and Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka said during a press conference that the constitution guarantees the right to picket and demonstrate. Yet, they remained adamant that the protests would be nonviolent.
The start of a nationwide strike was called by Raila, who recognized Ruto's administration as an unconstitutional government. According to him, the biggest protest would take place on March 20 in Nairobi. Ruto must leave, he said.
A people's Baraza will be held in Migori county on Friday, according to an announcement made by Odinga and other Azimio officials. In order to make the meeting unique, he has urged his fans to attend in huge numbers.
Some government officials have criticized this announcement, stating that asking for widespread protest will not result in any action.
A prominent voice in the Azimio campaigns, Kanini Kega, has also stated that the Jubilee Party will not participate in the event. This is in contrast to Kioni's claims that the party is firmly aligned with Azimio and will adhere to Raila's instructions.
