On Wednesday afternoon, Catholic Bishops led by Anthony Muheria paid a visit to the Azimio leadership at Raila's Capitol Hill office. Among the leaders present during the meeting were; Kalonzo Musyoka, Eugene Wamalwa among others.
The Bishops went to try and find a solution over the ongoing demonstrations which now seem to have taken a wrong turn. The men of God wanted Odinga to call off demonstrations and seek other ways of addressing his grievances.
While speaking to the media, the Bishops said that the country was doing well before the demonstrations started. They went ahead to advocate for peace. (Watch from 2 min).
"The route the country has taken is dangerous. We were doing well as country before the demonstrations started. We thank Raila Odinga and his team for hosting us and we will come again until we get a solution," stated one of the Bishop.
The Bishops also called on the government to restrain from using excessive force while handling the demonstrators. They also advocated for dialogue between the Azimio leadership and the government.
However, moments after this meeting, Raila Odinga went to his social media handles and indicated that the Thursday demonstrations will go on as planned. He stated that the protests will be peaceful.
