"There's plot to ferry goons to Azimio peaceful mass action" - Raila
Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition's mass action on Monday, March 20 will be peaceful, Raila Odinga has said.
In an exclusive interview with TV47 on Saturday, March 18, Raila urged all Kenyans and businesspersons not to worry because their demonstrations within the Nairobi metropolitan area will be peaceful.
"Maandamano yetu yatakuwa ya amani. Watu wetu wote watakuwa wamebeba vitambaa vyeupe, wengine watabeba bendera za Kenya ili kuonyesha sisi ni watu wa amani," Raila said.
He, however, claimed that there was a plot by Kenya Kwanza government to ferry rogue youth to the procession for purposes of causing chaos and destruction of property, so that the opposition coalition takes the fall.
"Tunajua kuna njama ya kuleta majambazi wengine walete vurugu, waharibu biashara ya wengine alafu sisi tulaumiwe. Tunataka kuambia taifa letu la Kenya ijulikane kuwa kama kutakuwa na fujo yeyote haitakuwa sisi. Wafanyibiashara wote wajue sisi tunataka uchumi uimarishwe, tunapigania wanyonge na hatuwezi kufanya chochote cha kuwadhulumu," Raila added, urging the police to provide security and ensure such "evil plans" do not suffice.
Raila said that the coalition has already written to police to notify them of Monday’s mass action.
“We notify you that on Monday, March 20, 2023, we will be holding a procession within the Nairobi metropolitan area. Kindly provide us with security for the same," Azimio's letter to the OCS, Central Police Station reads.
