Tension high as Ruto’s close man now reveals what will happen if Raila attempts to organise demonstrations against Ruto’s administration

UDA chairman Johnson Muthama has called on Kenyans to shun attempts by Azimio leader Raila Odinga to allegedly cause disunity among Kenyans.

In a statement on Sunday, Muthama said that Kenyans have moved on from the election period.

“Kenyans have moved on and are working hard to build the nation in peace. The Mass Action Raila has called for on December 7, 12 is a clear indication that he has failed to reconcile himself with the reality of the times we are living in, where every effort must be directed towards uplifting the lives of those who occupy the bottom of the economic pyramid,” he said.

His sentiments comes days after Azimio la Umoja One Kenya chief Raila Odinga’s called for mass action to “resist the capture and emasculation of key institutions,” accusing President William Ruto’s government of “taking a machete to hack and mutilate the Constitution.”

The rallies are also intended to show support for four top officials of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), who are facing removal through a tribunal formed by the President

One of the commissioners, Mr Justus Nyang’aya, resigned yesterday.

Two parties in the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition – Jubilee and Kanu – said they would not be part of the rallies called by Mr Odinga while Wiper officials were non-committal.

Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni told the Saturday Nation that the party would not take part in the rallies that are to start at Kamukunji grounds in Nairobi on Wednesday.

“Jubilee does not advocate for chaos. It is not part of our agenda,” Mr Kioni said.

He, however, added that the former ruling party is solidly in Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition.

Wiper’s position is not clear but Makueni Senator Dan Maanzo said mass action is both a political and individual right, adding that anyone who believes in it should be allowed to participate.

“It’s not a Wiper action but mass action,” Mr Maanzo told the Saturday Nation.

Kitui Central MP Makali Mulu supported the call for demonstrations, terming the removal of the IEBC Commissioners as political.

“The right procedure was not followed. It was more of a political process than a legal one, and therefore we need to hit the streets,” Dr Mulu said yesterday.

Azimio la Umoja One Kenya governors opposed the calls for mass action in a meeting with the coalition leadership last weekend.
