Just hours to the much hyped mass action organised by former prime minister Raila Odinga's Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition party, Mumias East Constituency member of parliament Peter Salasya, has begged president William Ruto to embrace talks instead of letting the people to go to the streets.

In a video posted on his official social media pages, the youthful member of Parliament noted that the economy is already destroyed and any demonstration will just worsen everything.

The vocal lawmaker noted that President William Ruto already knows why they are planning to go to the streets and instead should prevent the tension by embracing dialogue between him and their coalition's leader former prime minister Raila Odinga.

He challenged the head of state to stop listening to the people close to him who are against any dialogue between him and the former prime minister noting that Kenya is one and should be protected at all costs.

"My advice to president is to listen to our demands and act on them, the economy of Kenya at the moment is so fragile to sustain any serious revolution/ chores /mass action at the moment." The member of parliament stated

"We need peaceful talks on issues that are pressing nothing to worry" The lawmaker added

This attracted attention of Kenyans who were quick to respond to him. Majority claimed that they have just been looking for handshake with the head of state. Others on the other hand noted that it is too late for the talks. Below are some comments;


Netya Wamukoyo: Your demands are cheap Ugali. You want the president to order that a plate of Ugali sells at 1 bob! Leteni huo ujinga. You have been inciting the masses.

Intelligence Is Awareness: You are a member of parliament. Your job is not to cook for villagers back home. Its to pass laws that address the cost of living like reducing taxes and taking a pay cut to reduce the tax payers burden of feeding you and the other MPs. Rioting will solve zero problems.

Wilson Talam: What you are requesting mhesh has been overtaken by events. The reason being you have already announced and mobilised people for Monday events and so how do you intend to reconcile the two to fit your argument.

Mshikaji: It's well known: Your main objective is to get another fraudulent handshake.
