‘We know what they did,’ Raila teases big revelation ahead of Wednesday’s Kamukunji rally
Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga has hinted at a big revelation as he rallies supporters for his planned nationwide demonstrations due to various issues against President William Ruto’s administration.
Starting Wednesday, December 7, Odinga has pledged to “bring down President Ruto’s system” in the public rallies which are set to kick off at the Kamukunji Grounds in Nairobi.
But while two parties under the Azimio coalition – Jubilee and KANU – have already pulled out of the planned demonstrations, the former prime minister took to social media on Sunday to confirm that the rallies are still on.
“We know what they did, how they did it, and who helped them do it. We shall reveal all that shortly,” said Odinga, without giving many details into whom or what he was referring to.
“Our meeting this coming Wednesday will proceed as planned,” he added. His post came after he toured Utawala in Nairobi.
Odinga’s demos stem from the ongoing probe of four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners by Parliament.
The four; Juliana Cherera, Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi and Justus Nyang’aya are being grilled after petitions were filed challenging their suitability to hold office, following their disowning of the August 9 Election presidential results.
He also accuses President Ruto of a ploy to rig the 2027 elections following suspension of the four, as well as what he terms as skewed public appointments.
On Sunday, Ruto downplayed Odinga’s rallies, saying that he will not be deterred from making progress in the country.
"We will continue without development programs with or without public rallies because we know that they do not want the country's economy to grow," he said during a church service at the University of Embu in Embu County.
Accusing the Azimio leader of repeatedly disrupting any progress made by the government, the president said it will not stop him from growing the nation's economy.
"They can do as they please but I assure them that Kenya is not going to be the same. You will not blackmail this nation and threaten the people of Kenya. We are determined to move the country forward and you will not hold us back. These people ought to be doing the work of the opposition. "
The Head of State went on to say that he has directed Interior Cabinet Secretary Prof. Kithure Kindiki to obtain the rally schedule so that security personnel can be provided "to protect” Odinga and his supporters.
