The planned mass protest by Azimio la Umoja coalition leader Raila Odinga has already drawn criticism from a number of sources as the nation waits with bated breath.
Raila has consistently claimed that President William Ruto and former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission head Wafula Chebukati conspired to steal the 2022 general election from him.
The former prime minister plans to lead his followers in anti-government protests in an effort to recapture his "stolen triumph" and pressure the Ruto administration.
Notwithstanding this, Kisumu politician Odoyo Owidi has vehemently disagreed with the ODM party leader over the use of mass protests to be ready for the general election of 2027.
Owidi, a former supporter of Raila, claims that while the leader of the ODM party is "spending" his time on "useless" protests, President Ruto is getting ready for the 2027 general election.
The former Lake Basin Development Authority board chairwoman believes that following a dismal showing in the 2022 election, it is time for Raila and his supporters to reflect.
Instead, adds Owidi, Raila has chosen to concentrate on a few protests, which he claims won't benefit him in the long run, particularly in the event that he decides to run for president once more in 2027.
Because of this error, according to Odoyo, Raila will ultimately reject the results of the general election in 2027, citing irregularities and other electoral fraud. And that this is the way Ruto will once again outwit him.
