Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, a key supporter of Kenyan President William Ruto, criticized opposition leader Raila Odinga for scheduling anti- government protests in Nairobi on March 20.
According to Cheruiyot, Odinga chose this date to threaten President Ruto into opening the feeding trough for him as former President Uhuru Kenyatta did.
Cheruiyot also stated that the current administration takes no prisoners, suffers no fools lightly and can never buy fear implying that Odinga's demands will not be met by the government.
Tensions have been rising between the administration and the opposition over claims of corruption and poor management.
Odinga has been a vocal critic of the Ruto administration, alleging that it has failed to address the needs of many Kenyans and has instead favored a select few.
"Basically, RAO is telling his supporters to give him one more week to try and threaten WSR into opening the feeding trough for him as Uhuru did. I have sad news for him, the current one takes no prisoners, suffers no fools gladly an can never buys fear. Change tact please," Senator Aaron Cheruiyot said.
The March 20 rallies will demand action on issues such as corruption, high unemployment, and rising living costs.
The opposition leader is also calling for increased accountability and transparency.
