Raila: State House March To Begin At Nairobi CBD

The “great march to State House,” according to Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga, is scheduled to begin on Monday in Nairobi’s Central Business District (CBD).

On Sunday, Odinga asked Kenyans to gather in force in the city’s center, from whence they would travel to President William Ruto’s official house to voice their complaints.

He asserts that their victory in the 2022 General Election was stolen as a result of a fraudulent process by the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission, and they will “reclaim” it (IEBC).

Let’s all gather in the CBD to start our great march back to the State House to recover our triumph, he said.

The former prime minister claimed on Saturday that, with the exception of a few opposition representatives, not all demonstrators will visit State House.

According to him, representatives would be dispatched to inform Ruto of Azimio’s complaints on behalf of the demonstrators, according to an interview with Citizen TV.

He said they had already told Japhet Koome, the Inspector General of Police, about the protests.

“We are legal experts who respect the law…

In a letter to the Inspector General of Police, our leader Wycliffe Oparanya announced that we would stage a rally. He said to Sam Gituku, “Those who can travel to Nairobi will come to Nairobi, and those who can’t will conduct their meetings wherever they are.

They will hold peaceful demonstrations and deliver the document to various government agencies. Here in Nairobi, we also have the documents which we are going to take to the President. We will deliver the memoranda there if he is in Harambee House, and we will send people, not a crowd, if he is in the State House. We will ask a select group of people—not the entire crowd—to deliver our petition to the President.

Odinga’s protests, which he insists would be peaceful, are a part of his strategy to put pressure on Ruto’s administration to cut living costs among other issues.
