Raila Warned, Told What'll Happen if he Tries to Remove Ruto From State House on Monday

If Raila Odinga, head of Azimio La Umoja, tries to oust President William Ruto from State House on Monday, he would get the country into serious difficulty. Once news spread that Raila would be leading his followers to State House during Monday's demonstrations in Nairobi, the Njuri Ncheke reported that this is what would happen.

In contrast, the Meru Council of Elders has issued a warning against this, claiming that it would amount to Raila's attempt to illegally dethrone a constitutionally elected monarch. It warns that this is not the way Raila should try to retrieve his supposedly stolen win, as it may easily get the country into difficulty and cause unrest.

If the president is removed from office, "blood will be poured," Njuri Ncheke Secretary-General Josphat Murangiri warns in a statement obtained by The Star. The elders have also expressed concern, saying that such actions would be tantamount to treason and demonstrating that Raila does not care about the welfare of the Kenyan people.

They have urged him to stop fighting the results of the presidential election in August and to respect the Supreme Court's decision to reject his plea.

You lost the election and brought a truckload of evidence to the Supreme Court, which was dismissed; yet here you are, six months later, saying that you want to utilize protests to storm the State House. According to what follows, the statement continues. Notwithstanding Raila's claims that Ruto is an illegitimate President, it remains unclear whether he plans to actively work to have him removed from office.

On Monday, after gathering with his allies at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Foundation headquarters, Raila will accompany his supporters to the Jivanjee Gardens, where opposition leaders will deliver their statements.
