It's less than 48 hours for Azimio's planned mass action to kick off and leaders from the political divide have continued to share their opinion with regard to the imminent mass action. There have been calls from both the political class and the clergy asking Raila to suspend his mass action.
This has however landed on deaf years as Raila and team have vowed to proceed with the protest as planned. Ruto on the other hand has started preparing the security details to deal with any situation that will arise especially in safeguarding properties of Kenyans.
Even as the push and pull continues, there are a section of leaders who are asking Ruto to consider a political truce with Raila Odinga. It all started with Nairobi county boss Johnson Sakaja who asked the president to consider an amicable way of resolving the standoff instead of maintaining the hard stands.
His remarks have been echoed by political analyst Professor Mutahi Ngunyi who has also said that Ruto should seek to unite the country instead of positioning himself against it. Prof went ahead to say that Sakaja's noble call for truce was the best option as it would have saved the country form the imminent mass action.
"Dear Ruto. You are UNITING the country. AGAINST yourself. Do not HARDEN your heart. And if you do, God will send a PROPHET to tell you to YOUR FACE: "...Let MY people GO!". I agree with SAKAJA. Search for a MIDDLE GROUND is what COUNTRY NEEDS." Prof Mutahi Ngunyi.
