"I Don't Support Demonstrations" Wambugu Says Shortly After Kioni Hinted on Jubilee's Attendance

Former Nyeri Town Member of Parliament Ngunjiri Wambugu and Jubilee Politician has distanced himself from planned protests by the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance boss Raila Odinga, against President William Ruto's Kenya Kwanza Government, in favour of the '4 descending' commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

Raila has maintained that he will lead the camp in protesting against the ouster of 4 commissioners; Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi, Justus Nyang'aya and Juliana Cherera, although the latter two have since resigned.

Taking to his social media accounts on Monday, Wambugu said, "Why I do not support the calls for demos this week; 'Mockers stir up a city, but wise man turn away from anger,' Proverbs 29:8."

His remarks came few hours after the Jubilee Party Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni, while speaking during an interview with Spice FM said that the Jubilee party might attend the rallies slated for December 7th and December 12th at Kamukunji Grounds, once they get details from Raila.

A good number of leaders some from the Azimio wing, and most from the Kenya Kwanza Camp led by Ruto and Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua have criticized the protests, urging the opposition to pursue other ways of disagreeing with the government.
