"Raila Should Give Kenyans a Break" Governance Expert Says, Sends Message to President Ruto

Governance and Policy Analyst Abdullahi Alas has criticized the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance boss Raila Odinga for blaming President William Ruto over demand to reduce the high cost of living.

In his interview with NTV on Wednesday, Alas argued that it is unrealistic for Raila and his camp to claim that Ruto has been insensitive of the high cost of living yet prices of basic commodities increased during the handshake regime.

"Raila must give us a break to some extend in that some of the problems we have now were there when he was having handshake with Uhuru Kenyatta and he was silent for almost five years. He is now coming out to speak only five months after the elections even when the government has not settled."

Alas argued that President Ruto should be worried should the Azimio camp make true their threats of mass action against the Kenya Kwanza government, as that might paint the government in a bad way.

"Kenyans are allowed to picket and assemble, but when they say that they will have mass action, is it peaceful or do they want to get violent? How will the mass action augur with investors, the current economy and I think that the Kenya kwanza government should be worried because this is not good for us as a country."
