Raila Odinga, the head of Azimio la Umoja, has been criticized by Nandi Governor Stephen Sang for organizing recent public protests, saying that by doing so, he is doing nothing but stifling the country’s development.
Governor Sang claims that the rallies are causing political turbulence, which makes it harder for President William Ruto to carry out his development strategy.
After a service on Sunday at St. Francis Catholic Church in Mosoriot, Nandi county, Sang questioned Raila about his specific intentions for obstructing the government if he, allegedly, failed to do so under President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration.
He did, however, concede that Raila has the right to organize public protests, provided that he does so for honorable reasons.
President Ruto, for his part, has insisted that he won’t be sidetracked by the antics and will carry out his duties as assigned.
Raila has often stated at the rallies that he does not recognize the Ruto and Deputy Rigathi Gachagua government and has demanded their resignation.
Additionally, he has cautioned the president against underestimating him.
Additionally, Raila has declared that in the upcoming days, he will hold his rallies in the counties.
