Led by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party Nyandarua Chairman, it is high time Dr Ruto' s administration addresses the pressing issues affecting hustlers and fulfil his campaign promises. Hundreds of Mount Kenya residents who turned up for the peaceful protests that happened across the County vowed to stand with Azimio leader until Dr Ruto' s government listens to them.

Among issues they now want to be immediately addressed ahead of mother of all rallies in Nairobi County include the high cost of living which they claimed has doubled since Kenya Kwanza adminstration came to power, high cost of fuel, electricity and the cost of basic food commodities.

This comes as the former Prime Minister accompanied by the Azimio leaders like the Wiper party boss, Kalonzo Musyoka, Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua, former Defence Cabinet Secretary, Eugine Wamalwa and Jeremiah Kioni continue with their anti- Ruto' s protests.

This comes as Azimio has also added another demand into their long list of what they want the current regime to immediately address. Raila and his team were in Mombasa on Sunday and Kilifi on Monday and today, Tuesday, the Raila' s motorcade is expected on the road.
