Raila: We Will Bring President Ruto’s System Down.

Raila Odinga, the leader of Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party, has said that his group will organize nationwide protests against President William Ruto’s administration.

Following the suspension of the four IEBC commissioners and what he labels “skewed public selections,” Mr. Odinga accuses President Ruto of a plot to rig the elections in 2027.

After meeting with Azimio leaders from Nairobi County on Friday, Mr. Odinga requested that his followers gather at the Kamukunji grounds on Wednesday of the following week to begin public marches.

“We will begin public dialogues with the people of Kenya to brainstorm on the direction the country is headed on December 7th at the ancient Kamukunji grounds here in Nairobi,” he said.

We shall return to the Kamukunji grounds on December 12 to continue these discussions about the state of the Kenyan nation and to pray for our country’s democracy, which is currently in jeopardy due to this regime.

The President’s recent acts, according to Mr. Odinga, are a reflection of the post-colonial age. Mr. Odinga, whose popularity originates from his historical fight for multipartyism in the country, presented an account of his struggle.

As a result, he forbade the Head of State from secretly attempting to restore pre-colonial forms of government and vowed to organize his supporters to oppose the Kenya Kwanza dictatorship.

“Those who shared my experience of this age should educate our young people about the arduous battle it required to get the freedom we have today. Let’s tell our kids about the things we saw and experienced during that time as eyewitnesses. We are in serious danger of regressing to the 1980s, he warned.

We should be prepared and eager to collaborate with the civil society, religious leaders, academics, and labor unions since they have always defended the country when threats surfaced.

We want to remind Mr. Ruto that the system he is seeking to rebuild already existed in this nation, he continued. We battled that structure. We dismantled that system. To the one he is currently inventing, we will do that. We’ll take it down. Let’s all take a stance for our nation before it’s too late.

In order to create a better country before it was too late, the former premier urged his people to unite behind him.

“I would never want another Kenyan to experience what some of us experienced. But I’m worried about Kenya. I worry about my nation. The ODM party leader declared, “We must rise up now because it would be too late later.

Because of this, we announce the beginning of the pushback we discussed a few days ago starting today.

The comments by Mr. Odinga come in response to President Ruto’s order suspending Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera, Commissioners Francis Wanderi, Irene Masit, and Justus Nyang’aya, who resigned on Friday, as well as the four IEBC employees under fire.

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Noordin Haji, recently decided to abandon some of the court charges related to some of the President’s Cabinet members, including Public Service CS Aisha Jumwa, on which Mr. Odinga also based his reasoning.

Criminal justice is disintegrating. Because of this, charges are being quickly dismissed, and offenders are being praised and become prosecution witnesses, he said.
