Azimio’s One Kenya supporters in Embu county have vowed to leave their daily activities from March 20, 2023, and join their colleagues from other counties in protest.

This follows Azimio One Kenya leader Raila Odinga’s announcement on starting mass action from March 20, 2023, to overthrow President William Ruto’s government which he says is “illegitimate.”

The former premier had issued a 14-day ultimatum to the government to address certain issues including the restoration of food subsidies and a reduction in taxes which lapsed on Wednesday evening last week.

He also demanded Kenya Kwanza government address the high cost of living by providing tangible solutions.

According to the supporters led by Moses Wamuru, the ODM chairman of Embu county, the Kenya Kwanza government had promised them a lot and in 100 days nothing has changed.

Wamuru observed that their leader remained Raila Odinga and that they will back and stand by him until the government meet their demands.

“Everybody is not happy, the cost of living is very high and many are the people who are going without food and basic commodities, this is impunity that we shall not tolerate,” Wamuru said.

The Azimio leader Raila Odinga on Thursday rallied his supporters to oppose the Kenya Kwanza rule adding that his supporters do not recognize Ruto as the president of Kenya, alongside all officials in the office with him.

Meanwhile, Odinga wants President William Ruto to halt the recruitment of Independent, Electoral, and Boundaries commissioners (IEBC) staff.

Speaking in Likoni Mombasa County during the Azimio Rallies, Odinga said the process should be revoked and the selection panel reconstituted with representatives drawn from political parties.
