In their weekly demonstration dubbed’ No Handshake, the Nairobi Business Community has warned Azimio La Umoja coalition leader Raila Odinga over plans to invade the city.
In a press meeting on Wednesday, Wilfred Kamau, their group leader, warned that the demonstrations would be a recipe for chaos and lawlessness.
“Should they put their threats to practice, we want to assure them that we are not moved. They will meet the Nairobi Business Community ready to resist them with equal measure,” he said.
He said they are dismayed by utterances being peddled by some opposition politicians and warned that such sentiments are a recipe for chaos and lawlessness.
”They said elections are over and people want to move on with their daily businesses without interference from “maandamano.”
“We want President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua to be given space to serve Kenyans,” Ndung’u Wachira, a trader said.
“We heard some MCA say that they will close businesses. That is hogwash. Those are uncalled-for utterances from an elected leader.”
