A number of politicians from the Nyanza Region have urged Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance leader Raila Odinga and his team to abandon their plans to stage public protest rallies over the removal of 4 commissioners from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
The politicians, including former Kisumu Senator Fred Outa, former Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma, and former Rangwe MP Martin Ogindo, asserted that Raila intended to use the youth for his own selfish interests and that he is converting the neighborhood and the youth into perpetual protesters.
Ogindo urged the youths to avoid participating in any protests that the Azimio team planned, stating that the camp should find alternative means to voice their displeasure with the current administration.
Ranguma called Raila's proposal absurd because it coincides with the former president of Kenya and chairman of Azimio, Uhuru Kenyatta, who has been promoting peace, while the ODM leader is promoting protests.
Others present at the press conference argued that the opposition ought to give Ruto's Kenya Kwanza administration time to carry out his agenda.
The topic of the aforementioned rallies is currently being discussed in-depth at a Parliamentary Group Meeting of the Azimio wing, which Raila is currently in charge of.
