Azimio La Umoja has planned marches and demonstrations beginning on Monday, and President William Ruto has asked that all police commanders stay out of the way. Raila Odinga, head of the Azimio movement, has called on his followers to gather in Nairobi on Monday for a demonstration against the government.
It has come to light that Ruto has asked police chiefs around the country to allow the protests to go as planned to prevent them from gaining traction. Authorities believe that Ruto has told them not to try to put an end to Raila's demonstrations for as long as they continue.
Several government officials have reportedly told the People Daily that this is one of Ruto's mental tricks to avoid having to communicate with Raila. If Raila assures Kenyans that the demonstrations will not devolve into a slaughter, then Ruto has made it apparent that he has no problem with them.
"The government does not tolerate theft, vandalism, or property damage. While some may refuse to acknowledge the results of the election, that will not inspire a revolution among law-abiding citizens. It was announced by him on Wednesday at the Department of State.
The paper claims that he is attempting to get Raila to end the protests by bringing in international pressure. The publication demonstrates that foreign missions are being used to try to persuade the opposition to toe the line, as Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka said yesterday in Nakuru.
In the Mazembe Grounds, Kalonzo declared, "The government is using foreign embassies to rally the diaspora community against the Opposition and to show them in an unfavorable light to the world community.
