What Raila Has Announced About His Rallies After Ruto's Warning From State House

Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga has demonstrated that he will not be intimidated with regards to his ongoing anti-government activities.

The leader has been holding rallies against the government, dubbed People's Barazas, with a mega demonstration event slated for Nairobi on Monday.

This has attracted the attention of President William Ruto, who on Wednesday warned that the government will not tolerate chaotic scenes in Nairobi.

He made the remarks in State House, while declaring that the government will not allow Raila to once again preside over violent demos in Nairobi.

"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, and their business is not affected and they can go to work (then) you can carry out your demonstrations," he said.

But Raila, unbothered, has declared that his events will continue, telling his supporters to prepare for another one in Nakuru County tomorrow.

The rally, he has said, will be held at the Mazembe Grounds in Nakuru West, starting from1pm, and has proceeded to ask his supporters to be sure to attend

"Tukutane Nakuru kesho!" the former Prime Minister has said in a tweet, and is expected to use the rally to respond to Ruto's attacks on him today.

He has said that the main plan is to ensure that Ruto, whom he claims is an illegitimate President after rigging him out, doesn't get to stay in power for long.

"Our date with destiny beckons, and on the 20th of this month, we shall answer that call. Indeed, Operation Ruto Out is well underway, he said earlier.
