Kenyans React As Chairman Of Luo Council Of Elders Slam Raila Over Demonstrations

Luo council of orders chairman nyandiko Ongadi has asked the former prime minister Raila Odinga to stop the planned countrywide demonstrations starting Wednesday this week.

Speaking to the media, the elder Said time has come for Raila to exit the stage after having tried the be president unsuccessfully for five occasions.

He said some of the issues raised against president Ruto's government like the issue of appointments have already been addressed by the appointment of cabinet secretary for ICT Eliud Owalo.

Further, he opined that people are now tired with regular demonstrations that Raila has been organizing for sometimes now which haven't born fruits.

It's however not clear whether Nyandiko's remarks represent the general mood of the elders from the entire luo nation.

This is not the time Raila is being dissuaded from organizing demonstrations due to wrong timing.

A group of luo professionals Last week urged the azimio boss to stop his planned demonstrations for the sake of peace.

It's also worth noting that even as Raila goes on with his plans, jubilee alliance party and KANU have distanced themselves from the rallies.

The statement by elder nyandiko has been hailed by majority of the netizens with some opining that Raila should just listen to the elder's advice and stop the plans he has terming the elder as one who is enlightened.

Yu: enlightened luo finally.

Simon: many Luos are coming to their senses finally.
