Azimio Silently Moves Back to Court, Details Emerge on What it Has Been Given Ahead of Monday

The Azimio La Umoja has silently moved back to court ahead of Monday demonstrations, Nairobi senator Edwin Sifuna has revealed.

The leader says that the move has been taken to ensure that the alliance carries out peaceful protests against President William Ruto on Monday.

He has said that the same has been successful, with the coalition being told what it needs to do to ensure that it holds the protests in a constitutional way.

Sifuna has revealed that consequently, they have now been given a blue print on how to hold the demos, and Kenyans can be sure that they will be peaceful.

"We went to court to get guidelines on how to exercise the rights under article 27. We have the blueprint on how to successfully undertake maandamano (protests) and that is what we are going to implement," he said on Thursday.

This comes at a time when the entire country is keenly watching if the alliance will even hold the demonstrations slated for Nairobi in the first place.

It will also be interesting to see if it's leader Raila Odinga will lead his supporters to State House has has been threatened by the Azimio side.

The demos come after warnings from President William Ruto, who, while speaking in State House yesterday, said he will not entertain chaotic scenes.

He said that while the former Prime Minister is free to exercise his constitutional right, it's upon him to ensure that everything runs smoothly on Monday.

"We have no problem with you organising demonstrations but please it is your responsibility to work with the police to make sure that the rest of the citizens of Kenya, their lives are not disrupted, their property is not destroyed, their business is not affected and they can go to work (then) you can carry out your demonstrations," he said.
