The Azimio La Umoja One Kneya Alliance Raila Odinga's plan to call for mass action against President William Ruto's government, after he suspended the 4 IEBC commissioners have attracted mixed reactions across the political space.
A section of leaders within the Azimio camp support the idea saying that they will not allow Ruto to take the country to the old days, while those in Ruto's Kenya Kwanza team are opposed to the planned protests, saying that such a strategy to get the government's attention will only scare away investors.
Speaking on Sunday with the Standard, Political Expert Barack Muluka, opined that no one should be blaming Raila for planning to hold demonstrations, since that is his survival card every time he loses an election.
But according to Muluka, Raila is acting on the pressure of his close allies, who want him to remain politically for their own sake ahead of the 2027 polls.
"You cannot blame Raila. It is the only formula he is used to. Even a star player knows when to quit, but what we are seeing is sad state of affairs.
Muluka claimed that Raila is trying to remain politically strong, although he believes that it is time for the Former Prime Minister to call it quits..
