The parallel anti-government rallies planned for Jamhuri Day have been canceled, according to the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya alliance.
Opiyo Wandayi, the minority leader, said that the cancellation was brought on by unconfirmed prior obligations that emerged after the first announcement.
However, according to Wandayi, nationwide public engagements will continue.
The Jamhuri Day celebrations for the coalition will take place on December 12 at Jacaranda Grounds, according to Azimio leader Raila Odinga’s announcement on Wednesday.
Azimio requested that the administration of President William Ruto address 12 important resolutions that it brought to the Nairobi Consultative Forum.
In order to reduce the cost of essential goods, the government is being put under pressure to resume subsidies for unga, fuel, school fees, and electricity.
The meeting, which was presided over by Raila Odinga, Martha Karua, and Kalonzo Musyoka, principals of Azimio, decided that Kenyans will be allowed to take whatever steps they deem appropriate to relieve their burden if the administration fails to reduce the price of critical products by January 2023.
Part of the resolutions delivered by National Assembly Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi stated that Ruto “needs to recognize that while his riches may have changed for the better, for a majority of parents, if not all, the economic situation has become worse or remained the same.”
The forum demanded that the Ruto administration reinstate and enhance social security benefits like cash transfers to the elderly, pesa ya wazee, and Linda Mama right away.
