Speaking from Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Foundation, the former PM called out the police following the level of violence across various parts of the country saying that Kenyans have the right to picket and demonstrate.
“The people of Kenya have a right to picket, demonstrate and petition. Article 1 of the Constitution says that the sovereignty in Kenya is vested in the people of Kenya and the people can either exercise it directly or through their elected representatives,” said Raila
His sentiments where echoed by Ugunja MP and National Assembly Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi who noted that the coming Wednesday demonstration to be held at Kamukunji grounds will be more intense.
“On Wednesday the whole country will come to a standstill as Kenyans of all walks of life participate in massive demonstrations in every width and breadth of the country. It is going to continue until the end…there is no stopping.” said Opiyo Wandayi
Hon. Wandayi continued by rubbishing off claims from the government that they should seek police permission first saying that they will only contact the police on matters protecting Kenyans.
The news comes at a time when Azimio has began a signature collection drive to rule the Kenya Kwanza government incompetent to govern the country.
