Boni Khalwale Warns Raila Against Taking Rallies to Kakamega, Tells Him What Will Happen

Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale dared Azimio leader Raila Odinga on Monday, November 28 after his announcement that he will lead countrywide rallies.

The senator who returned after a five-year absence warned Raila that holding a rally in Kakamega would be impossible due to massive opposition.

"I have noticed that you want to sneak Kakamega County into your proposed mass action," Khalwale said in a statement to Raila.

"We are sorry that will not happen; we will oppose the move with other elected leaders from the region."

"As Kakamega leaders, we are charting a course for our people's development; please hold those rallies elsewhere," he warned the former prime minister.

The senator became the latest to weigh in on Raila's proposed nationwide protests.

"On Wednesday, November 30, we will hold a meeting at the Kamukunji grounds to ask the people if they accept the petition to send four IEBC commissioners home."

"We will then hold other rallies across the country, beginning with Mombasa and Nakuru." "Odinga stated on November 27th.

Raila's plan to hold rallies was dismissed by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Sunday, November 27.

"If they want people to take to the streets, they must set a good example."

"Let their daughters and sons physically lead the demonstrations from Arusha, and the rest of Kenya can follow," Gachagua said, dismissing Raila's move.
