"We Will Join Hands Together" Jubilee To Participate In The Anticipated Demos By Azimio

The head of the Azimio One Kenya Coalition Party, Raila Odinga, has stated that the Jubilee Party will participate in his upcoming nationwide demonstrations if requested to do so.

Jeremiah Kioni, the party's secretary general, stated on Monday, December 5, that party members will participate in the public rallies beginning on Wednesday, December 7, if necessary.

Kioni claims that the former ruling party and the other members of the Azimio alliance are expecting an instruction from Odinga regarding the specifics of the meeting.

"If attending the rally is required for us to represent the opposition, we will do so." In an interview with Spice FM, Kioni said, "I am sure we will hear from Raila Odinga." He added.

Kioni added that he would contact Odinga to find out the specifics of the rally's timing and the coalition's future strategy.

The former president Uhuru Kenyatta's party has changed its strategy, despite having said on Saturday, December 3, that it would not take part in Odinga's protests.

The Jubilee SG made it clear in a statement that the former ruling party will not take part in Odinga's rallies, which were set to begin at Nairobi's Kamukunji Grounds.

Additionally, Kioni applauded Raila's plans to organize opposition to Ruto's administration, saying that protests are a crucial tool the opposition has at its disposal that the leader of the opposition is successfully utilizing.

The opposition has the option to protest, and they should do it when they feel it is appropriate. Additionally, the constitution has provisions for that," he said.

On December 7, Odinga gathered his supporters to discuss how to hold the Kenya Kwanza government accountable.

He insisted that Azimio will hold their initial rally at Nairobi's Kamukunji grounds before moving on to Mombasa, Nakuru, and Kakamega counties.

On Sunday, December 4, President William Ruto gave Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki the order to protect the opposition during their protests.
